Design Concept

Nature Millworks’ Resort & Cafe is a locally intrigued, adaptive reuse project that comprises a place for lounging, lodging, and learning. The attraction of the building comes from the historical elements that are architecturally inclined with the existing structure of the mill. The timber framework of the lounge patio is created using the locally sourced Paisley Architectural Millwork.

The site consists mostly of woodlands, wetlands, and bodies of water. In retrospect the size of the Nature Milworks’ Resort & Cafe, building footprint being a little over 1000 sqft, is quite small in scale with regards to the site. This means there is a lot of space for trails or other types of tourist attractions that will entice possible visitors and enhance their stay with the mill.
