A centerpiece in the Sierras
Camp Chawanakee, 2013
Eagle Point extends the Camp Chawanakee Master Plan completed as an intern at Darden Architects. The projects takes into account the programmatic and spatial references of the master plan as a guide to design a new administration center, perched on a mountain crest overlooking the camp and adjoining lake.
In keeping with the principles of Scouts BSA, the building's design maximizes energy and resource stewardship with thermal mass, mechanically-operated brise soleil and fenestration openings. The building's wedge-shape is designed to literally pry from the earth - its strong linear axes directing view and attention out to nature where Scouting heritage is manifested.
