Tooke House is a sustainably designed addition to a stone Civil War era building on the campus of Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA.  It is situated on an rural site adjacent to the Conococheague Creek and provides a new student center and housing for Wilson College’s Environmental Education Program.  The new structure is conceived as a simple bar made of modular volumes that adjust to the different uses and site conditions.  Sustainable features include south-facing photovoltaic panels, a natural ventilation system, natural lighting, and a rainwater harvesting tank stores water for the adjacent organic farm.  The addition faces the creek and includes a deck platform and sitting areas that connect the building with the water.
