Introduction | The Team | The Process | Key Findings | The Opportunites

 

In the summer of 2009, Blithewold issued a request for proposal (RFP) for a Master Plan to create "a roadmap for moving forward responsibly, to fulfill the organization's mission." A multidisciplinary team led by Ann Beha Architects was selected in December 2009 and began work in February 2010.

 The Master Plan considered both the physical structure of the site and the philosophical, administrative and financial framework required to sustain it. Work began with research in the Archives and interviews and assessments of the site, structures and organization of Blithewold. More than fifteen workshops were held over eighteen months with staff, trustees and distinguished advisors, as well as volunteers, neighbors and the public. These clarified needs and concerns and provided an opportunity for all to dream about what Blithewold could offer 10 to 20 years from now.

  • Fresh air and exercise (Apr 17, '15)
    This past week was just what the doctor ordered. Sunshine and temperatures in the 50s and 60s made being up and out absolutely irresistible — for us and the spring flowers we’ve been waiting so (im)patiently for. Everything that, as of last week, still seemed tightly budded and winter-stunted is suddenly busting to bloom. The daffodils have started opening and, depending […]
  • Seeing flowers (Apr 10, '15)
    I don’t want you to get too excited by the title of this post. Signs of spring are popping out, bit by bit, but we’re not seeing many flowers yet. We’re still waiting for the daffodils to make an appearance. That said, feel free to do a little dance if you want to (I do) because it won’t […]
