Bridge Gardens Renovation Plans Receive a Design Award from AIA Peconic

Bridge Gardens

AIA Peconic, the East End’s chapter of the American Institute of Architects, recognized outstanding design, sustainable architecture and adaptive reuse at the AIA Peconic Daniel J Rowen Memorial Design Awards. Nilay Oza AIA of Oza Sabbeth Architects received the Projects Unbuilt Juror Award for the Bridge Gardens Renovation plans. 

The Garden house, on the footprint of a former potato barn, will be renovated and reimagined as an educational and welcome center, coming to life as a truly public gathering place.

From the AIA Peconic: “The jury admired and appreciated the attention to the history of the cultural landscape. The adaptive reuse and transformation over time from a Potato Farm to a Residence now transformed into a proposed public, multi-purpose, community center with demonstration gardens and outdoor classroom that highlights and focuses the community on the history of Long Island’s working farms is a poignant form of architecture as a social art.”
