Garden City Harvest
Garden City Harvest Farmstead
Offices and Farm Center in Missoula MT
Joint project with Sustainable Building Design & Inkstone Architecture,
Completed 2017 by Mast & Co.
The farmhouse structure houses offices and management operations and includes a ‘corn crib’ clad bathroom block. The barn is connected via a breezeway to the office space. The barn has a large meeting area, sheltered outdoor space for veggie share pick-ups, a commercial kitchen for workshops, the farm manager’s office, a caretakers’ apartment, and a drying loft for winter vegetables. A tractor shed with a 10Kw PV array completes the farmstead. The buildings are four times tighter than required, and operable triple-pane windows offer extensive daylight and ventilation while keeping heating and cooling costs minimal. Locally sourced and reclaimed wood is used extensively throughout the buildings. Native/edible and water-wise landscaping surrounds the complex.
