Jorgensen Farms

Columbus, Ohio | 2022

Jorgensen Farms is a working organic farm and event venue located on 100 acres of Ohio farmland. JBAD was asked to help Val and David upgrade and expand their facilities including the existing Historic Barn and a new Ceremony Building and Bride & Groom Suites. True to the authentic agrarian character of Jorgensen Farms, JBAD has created a series of simple, elegant structures sited as stand-alone functional objects that reinterpret rural Midwestern vernacular architecture and act as a bookend to the Flower Fields, a favorite wedding venue. Heavy timber, exposed steel and wood bowstring trusses and charred So Sugi Ban wood cladding are among the spare, functional details. The traditional procession of gathering, preparation, ceremony, and celebration inform the siting and relationships of the buildings and the outdoor spaces defined by them. Construction is underway and focused on a 2022 opening.
