Gateway Farm, River Road, Chesterfield County, Virginia
This multiphase project began with a HUD financed 16 bedroom group home in 1990. In the mid-nineties, JT Cox & Associates Architects, PLC, created a Master Plan for Gateway Farms' twenty-six acre site. Three privately financed apartment clusters, designed to stylistically match the group home, were constructed between 1998 and 2001. In 1999 a Multipurpose Faciltiy containing a training kitchen, exercise room, office space and activity space was completed. The design of the Multipurpose Facilty is reminiscent of a barn structure to emphasize Gateway Farms' pastoral setting.
