Kennett Township Municipal Building


This design for this 7 acre site was carefully planned to fit into the existing farm land, local farmhouse architecture and rural character of Chester County. A heritage Sycamore tree on the site dictated the building site and a low dry-stack stone wall protects the tree which has thrived in spite of the nearby construction. Native trees, shrubs and perennials are featured on the site along with an ever-changing meadow of grasses and perennial wildflowers. A mowed path through the meadow winds around native trees with labels for identification. A detention basin has been planted in water tolerant perennial and grasses for maximum biodiversity.
