Spring House Village
Lower Gwynedd Township, PA
MV+A undertook a total redesign and repositioning of Spring House Village Center in Lower Gwynedd Township, Pennsylvania. The center, now anchored by Whole Foods Market, consists of six new buildings carefully placed on the rolling hills of the 18‑acre site. The architecture reflects the agrarian vernacular of the early buildings constructed by the original Quaker settlers, with their influence seen through the generous use of fieldstone veneer, simple sloped roof forms, and minimal, crisp detailing. Long‑time tenants were accommodated during the redevelopment; the popular restaurant, Arpeggio’s BYOB, has been relocated into a purpose‑built building with an outdoor dining terrace overlooking Willow Run. Through this new development, Spring House Village has become an essential gathering place for residents of Lower Gwynedd Township.
