Studio Twenty Seven Architecture is working with nationally recognized landscape architect Nelson Byrd Woltz to create a new park in Loudoun County, Virginia. The park is funded and constructed under a partnership between Loudoun Water, which owns and maintains the 300-acre reservoir as a source of drinking water for Loudoun County residents, and NOVA Parks, a regional park authority in Northern Virginia.

The innovative park is designed with “source water protection” in mind.  Studio 27 has created a welcome center, crew boat house, and several other pavilion facilities to complement the park’s mission of highlighting the connections between ecological health, human health, and recreation.
