The winter is preventing you from seeing a lot of progress on the Door County Granary, but the structure itself is earning plenty of praise from the architectural community.
The Boston Society for Architecture bestowed its 2021 Unbuilt Architecture and Design Award to the Door County Granary for its exemplary design and positive impact on the community. It was one of two yet-to-be-built projects to earn the distinction from a jury of design professionals. La Dallman Architects helped design the building and was already awarded the Progressive Architectural Award in 2021. Executive Director Beth Renstrom is thankful for the entire project team including Beane Engineering and Greenfire Management Services and members of the community for having the vision for what this building could be.
Mother Nature has not been the best foreman for the project this winter, but the pilings and the foundation for the main part of the granary are in. The foundation for an addition to the granary has yet to be poured. Once that is completed, the granary will be able to be placed back in its original spot on the west waterfront.
