Life In the Woods

A community on a small and intimate scale.

Room to roam. Art to inspire us. Idyllic places to meditate.

A group of people who think seriously about net-zero

living and a belief that we can all benefit by creating a space

that brings us closer to nature… and to ourselves.

Vision
At a time when so many of us live our lives connected
to work or connected to our devices, maybe its time
to try something new. Maybe its time to reconnect
with ourselves, with our families and true friends and
with a larger sense of what life is really about.

IMAGINE

What if there were only two rules?

1. Don’t take down any trees

EXPERIENCE
Walden Monterey challenges its future
residents to experience the sites,
utilizing unique temporary shelters to serve as
hosts for your orientation in nature.
DESIGN
A home is a very personal expression. With
that in mind, and with an understanding of the
power of architecture and design to shape a
community, we offer architects something rare
– more freedom than they’ve likely had on any
other project.

TEAM
The story begins in 2016 when we gathered with architects, designers, strategists, environmental engineers, landscape architects, and artists to create a new vision for a small sustainable community that would flourish on 600 acres of the Monterey Peninsula. We were fortunate to work with some of the leading voices of our generation, and we are confident that Walden will be stronger for having had these invigorating and fruitful debates.

PURPOSE

The Walden Gathering came together after a
challenge was made to create a purposeful platform that
would allow a private forest and a group of passionate
innovators to find inspiration from Nature to focus on
making the world better for generations to come.

SITE
600 acres on the Monterey Peninsula. 22 home sites. A
landscape that seems to dissolve the boundaries
between lot and open space. Here nature will be the
inspiration for all that we do.
