Set on the eastern shore of the Cayuga Lake in upstate New York, the Aurora Event Center is envisioned as a year-round event space, accommodating weddings for up to 250 guests. The primary design intent is to create a strong connection to the lake and frame its picturesque views. It is purposefully designed to not disturb the existing historic sites in the village and neighboring residences, but to maintain a seamless integration with the surrounding landscape while providing protection from inclement weather.
