Program: Building assessment and historic preservation for a Scandinavian-style church complex
Björklunden Vid Sjön is a 425-acre estate on Lake Michigan in Door County, Wisconsin, which serves as Lawrence University’s northern campus. Björklunden hosts retreats and seminars for Lawrence students and faculty throughout the academic year and adult continuing-education seminars during the summer.
TKWA was asked to develop a building assessment and long-term maintenance plan for a complex of historic Scandinavian-style buildings located on the property, including the hand-built Björklunden Chapel. In addition, TKWA worked with students from the Historic Preservation Institute at the UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning to create a set of as-built drawings for the historic buildings.
