Lenfest Center at ChesLen Preserve
The Lenfest Center at ChesLen Preserve is a 9,300-sf facility from which Natural Lands Trust provides conservation and maintenance of ChesLen Preserve. The indoor and outdoor gathering spaces are also used for special events. HLTF designers worked closely with the architects to incorporate and design timber framing into this beautiful complex. The main building and pavilion are crafted from Douglas Fir timbers complemented by an oak trellis. The project was honored with a 2013 Architect’s Challenge Award from Marvin Windows, a 2013 Associated Builders and Contractors Construction Excellence Award, and a 2013 PA Society of American Registered Architects Design Award.
