Amagansett Food Institute
Location:Amagansett, New York
Program:feasibility study for food campus
Building Size:5000 sq ft
The Amagansett Food Institute is looking for a home base of operations. A building with multi purpose functionality, where an educational space, demonstration kitchen, commercial kitchen, event space, farmers markets, local foods market, cafe, offices and distribution center for local farming, fishing and viticulture can coexist. AFI's mission is to be a transplantable model for organizations seeking to bring communities closer to their food source. BergDesign believes that AFI's building should also lead by example. Berg Design's drawing to date focuses on creating a sustainable, LEED certified, modern building, which references the agricultural building vernacular. The buildings schematic plans echo the openness that the organization was founded on.
