Hempstead Garden is a private garden and residence on a 19 acre site in Hempstead, Texas, owned and developed for the past 25 years by John Fairey. An associated Garden Conservation Foundation recently acquired an adjacent 20.1 acre property. Interloop—Architecture was commissioned to research the operational aspects of the original garden and new piece of land to develop a site concept for one integrated garden and the addition of a significant research and cultural center. The following concept positions an expansion of the formal garden onto the new property and provides a unified building infrastructure for plant research, plant propagation, the cataloging and storage of seed, private and public educational activities, exhibitions and public lectures, living accommodations for researchers in residence, staging and storage of plants for sale, administrative offices, and parking for staff and public events.
