Abstract (type = abstract)
The transition from one space to another is a fundamental element of design that frames the view and the experience. Whether transitions occur inside or outside or between the two, these transitions, or thresholds, are unique to every site.

This thesis is a study of thresholds at the Raymond Farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania along a site transect that includes spaces both inside (the Raymond Farm Center) and outside. As the Raymond Farm Center has been expertly designed to connect to its surroundings it needs no adjustment. This thesis focuses on the study of spatial thresholds, but also stresses the importance of place to create a design that respects the existing beauty of the landscape. Multiple visits were made to the Farm in order to experience the site overall and locate the thresholds that define the experience. During the visits personal experiences were recorded and empirical data were collected to better identify things such as temperature changes, flora species, and the presence of sun or shade and how it affected space. Within this complex landscape, multiple layers of thresholds were identified at various scales. Some were more obvious, while others were hidden to the casual eye.

The intention of the design is to draw more awareness to the existing thresholds within the landscape, by enhancing their presence through subtle design interventions that cause the visitor to pause and look again at their surroundings. Inspiration for elements within the design came from the work of the Antonin and NoƩmi Raymond and George Nakashima.
