Sandywoods Farm is a unique arts and agricultural community designed to combine affordable rental and market-rate housing with a working farm, mixed-use/retail as well as studio, gallery, and performance space for artists, taking a multi-use approach that fosters a strong community identity. Sandywoods includes 50 affordable cottages for rent and a future phase of 24 single-family homes for ownership. In addition, the project preserves 147 acres of land for a working farm, open space, community gardens. Due to the compact planning of the neighborhood, the remaining site has been donated to The Nature Conservancy. A community “Grange Hall” – and other community space within the development — features theater performances, potlucks, cooking classes, and other group events. Power will be provided for nearly all of Sandywoods residents by a 250 kW wind turbine on site.
Working with a local nonprofit developer to bring the project to fruition, Union Studio created the masterplan and designed all of the buildings that populate this agri-arts community.
