Adirondack Tech Farm
Reflecting the tech park's environmentally conscious program, the design of STEP 1 reinterprets the regional Adirondack style established by local timber industries and boarding camps of the early 20th century. Simple architectural forms recall the geometries of that period, but with new materials and detail elements. Offices and public spaces enjoy extensive daylighting and views of the tall, pine-forested environment. A transparent central communal lobby projects outward strengthening connectivity between technology and nature. Reflecting NYSERDA’s commitment to the environment, the site has been certified as a tree farm by the American Tree Farm System®.
