Stamford, CT - Architectural firm, TSKP Studio of Hartford Conn. has received a 2019 AIA Connecticut Design Award of Merit for their design of the Stamford Museum & Nature Center's Knobloch Family Farmhouse, which opened less than a year ago in November 2018.

“We are incredibly proud of Whit Iglehart and the TSKP team for their extraordinary vision for our Knobloch Family Farmhouse,” said Melissa H. Mulrooney, Executive Director & CEO of SM&NC. “This highly functional Farmhouse complex blends effortlessly and elegantly into our forested landscape and the charm of our beloved Heckscher Farm.”

The Stamford Museum & Nature Center’s award-winning Farmhouse is the first new building to be constructed at the SM&NC in 50 years, and now provides educational spaces, visitor services, and a secondary entrance to the 118-acre site. The Farmhouse features a rustic multipurpose Great Room, professional Catering Kitchen, state-of-the-art audio visual system, and a 1,000 square foot Overlook Terrace cantilevered over the north pasture of the historic Heckscher Farm.

New construction also includes a Maple Sugar + Cidery, a redesigned 158-space lighted parking lot, and additional outdoor gathering spaces with the Farmhouse Plaza, Millstone Fountain, and an outdoor classroom called the Council Ring.

Awards presented by AIA Connecticut celebrate the accomplishments of Connecticut architects and the excellence of Connecticut architectural projects. Recipients will be honored at an awards gala on December 9, 2019.
