 Putney General Store - Putney, Vermont - Maclay Architects

 For over 200 years the town of Putney has had an historic 2 ½ story general store in the center of the village. That structure was completely lost in a fire during the fall of 2009. The Putney Historical Society, who had purchased the property in 2008, selected Maclay Architects to design a new high-performance, energy efficient, code compliant, multi-purpose structure on the footprint of the former building to house a combination of retail and business occupants. After an extensive schematic design phase, the Historical Society selected a design option that recreates much of the historic massing and architectural detailing of the former 200 year old general store. The selected design was developed with close attention to balancing budgetary constraints and long-term maintenance and environmental goals.
