Dancing Point | Charles City County, VA
Amid the broad river confluence of the James and Chickahominy, this once private family retreat is to be transformed into a “Center of Contemplative Thought” - where both individuals and corporate groups can assemble for extended conferences and dynamic gatherings. The master plan proposes enhancement to the overall use and circulation with distinct nodes and aesthetic. Small cabins connect by path or boardwalk- each with distinct style and landscape character. Programmatic elements include a paddock with trail system, wetland kayak trail, hiking, sculpture set within ornamental gardens, and the central residence as the center for common interaction. The unique qualities of this landscape are celebrated by deliberate view-sheds, contemplative walks, indigenous material, and sustainable practices.
