Raymond Farm Center and Nakashima Woodworkers in New Hope
Shofuso’s architect, Junzo Yoshimura’s mentor, Noemi and Antonin Raymond settled at Raymond Farm in 1939, and modified a 18th century Quaker farmhouse with Japanese architectural elements. In 1943, the Raymonds vouched for George Nakashima and his family from the internment camp. A few years later, Nakashima established Nakashima Woodworkers in New Hope near Raymond Farm. George Nakashima designed and built this studio and residence with his knowledge and experience working at the Raymond’s architectural firm with Junzo Yoshimura in Japan.
