The Farmington Nature Center is situated within a unique northern New Mexico environment: a nature preserve adjacent to the Animas River.


Designed with an educational mission, the nature center draws visitors’ attention to the natural surrounds through its siting, view corridors and use of materials. Gluam beams, river rock, sealed and exposed OSB panels - all these relate to the surrounds and provide a low-maintenance facility suggestive of the nature center’s rural setting. The durable informality emphasizes environmental awareness and sustainability while also providing a lasting facility.
