AMAGANSETT FOOD INSTITUTE
Amagansett, New York
Feasibility Study (2012)
Building Size: 5000 square feet
The Amagansett Food Institute is looking for a home base of operations. A building with multipurpose 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 feasibility study drawings to date focus 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.
