Oyster Farm

On the banks of the lower Delaware Bay a family owned oyster farm, with scientific roots in aquaculture, positions themselves to showcase sustainable standards and educational outreach.

 

The farm is a purveyor for the half shell market to select local Philadelphia restaurants.  Establishing an eco-tourism destination as a value-added component would allow the farm to more effectively raise awareness to the importance of aquaculture and its relationship to the tri-state agritourism farm to table food movement. 

 

The design redeveloped processing procedures by challenging the industry’s typical exercised models by promoting scalability, efficiency all while having a low impact footprint.  

 

The farm’s destination becomes a catalyst for reinstating the bay’s native landscape and supporting processing, distribution, special events and educational outreach.

Oyster Seed Production

An existing research facility on the lower Delaware Bay, developed for the study of aquaculture, grows and supplies the tri-state oyster farmers with selectively bred oyster seed.

When the facility planned to increase its seed production it was unknow to what extent the facility would need to expand its footprint.  Bosco Architect’s space planning audit identified that the specialized drainage and containment infrastructure could better be utilized via a sequential layout supporting the desired yields without expansion.

This reallocation of spatial real estate allows for the increase of seed production and a much-needed support office, permitting the University to tandemly occupy the facility and advance their diverse aquaculture research.

Warehouse Distillation

This multi-story industrial warehouse, circa 1900, offers opportunities between floors to organize the client’s operational needs allowing the overall design to be strengthen by the visional connection to the historic context.  Original timbers, wide plank floors and brick walls offer a unifying background the design’s steel, glass, and screen-printed images.

Cinema Distillation

Originally constructed circa 1900 as a silent picture movie theater, this triangular building gets its shape by two converging neighborhood streets.  

 

A client’s vision to create a unique destination for the showcase of production and enjoyment of craft sprits becomes elevated after discovering that the existing structure’s context offered many design opportunities.  

 

Original features include diverging brick walls, second-floor film projection booth, and high tin ceilings.  The tasting room anchors the corner entry and has an expansion screen view into the entire manufacturing floor scene.  The aperture between tasting and production could be programmed for viewing and or projected film and distillation class course material.

Farm Distillation

Adjacent to a barn turned brewery, an existing timber frame barn is re-programed to contain a tasting bar, second story special events space, and a manufacturing space for the distillation of craft spirts.

 

The patron interaction resides amongst the timber framed structure, while the linear manufacturing process is anchored within the north side building addition.  A cost-effective metal frame and translucent panel system provides abundant natural daylighting for the day to day operations while promoting a clear distinction between the old and new.
