building_winter_scene.jpg The Wild Center/Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks, a new museum complex in Tupper Lake, New York, has earned distinction as the first LEED certified museum in the State of New York.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) system is the recognized international benchmark in green building design and construction.

Through a series of integrated sustainable strategies that are expected to save between 20 percent and 30 percent of its normal operating costs, The Wild Center exceeded the base LEED certification to earn a Silver distinction. The LEED system provides a roadmap for measuring and documenting sustainability across six categories: sustainable site including construction activity pollution prevention; water efficiency; energy and atmosphere; materials and resources; indoor environmental quality; and innovation and design process.

A renovation and addition to a historic museum.

Located in Brunswick, Maine, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art is a historic building originally designed by Charles Follen McKim of McKim, Mead and White and dedicated in 1894. It is considered a Landmark in North American museum architecture. The project by Machado and Silvetti Architects  had to on enlarge the existing museum to accommodate the museum’s expanding needs. The project also needed to update the building systems. The architects had therefore to bring the museum into Twenty first Century requirements while keeping the integrity of the original nineteenth Century building.

The project by Machado and Silvetti Associates  consisted of the renovation and expansion of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum located in the small Massachusetts seaside town of Provincetown.

The project posed two challenges. The existing Museum is a historic 19th century building 'The Hargwood House'. The first challenge was therefore building a large extension that doesn’t conflict with the exiting building. The second challenge was to develop a large scale building, without overpowering the surrounding residential area of the small town. Machado and Silvetti Associates turned out this smart solution at the same time elegant, contemporary, and well integrated in its surroundings.
