Baldwin Center for Preservation Development


The Baldwin Center for Preservation Development is a post and beam structure featuring an open hall space which serves as the community building for Bundoran Farm, a 2,300-acre working farm partnership between farming and development. The center also serves as their real estate and business office and holds administrative offices, conference spaces, and a catering kitchen and lounge. The two-story building barn style building has shiplap cladding on the exterior, cedar paneling at the interior, stained concrete floors at the main level, and wide plank red pine floors on second level. The use of simple materials, incorporating a vernacular barn style, and being situated where previous farm housing was located, is all part in keeping with the overall mission of the preservation development— to be as respectful and minimally impactful to the working farm.
