01 Mar Grand Gathering Place
The Camp Lodge, which took two and a half years to complete, also stands out for its use of common materials in uncommon ways. The striped red and black asphalt shingle roof uses color and varying widths to break up the visual pattern and minimize impact. The spires act as an integrated roof detail, akin to exclamation points on the ends of each wing of the building. In the octagonal-shaped Cliff Room, the patchwork quilt ceiling took over 500 hours to create, hand-sewn from reclaimed and vintage fabrics.
Through its sense of spaces, design and décor, the Camp Lodge has captured the best of a bygone era. Yet it is also a model of modern sustainability, built to LEED Gold standards with extensive insulation, natural light and operable windows not commonly found in buildings of this size. Reclaimed and recycled materials are found throughout (including 80 percent of the exterior furniture).
With the lodge’s multiple dining rooms, luxurious spa, decks and pool, Martis Camp certainly created a spectacular gathering place for its owners. It is sustainable both in its materials and appeal—a shining landmark built to stand the test of time.Architect: Swaback Partners, Builder: Hayhoe Construction, interior: Vallone Design, Swaback Partners, Landscaping: Swaback Partners, Square Feet: 50,000 ± [plus 12,000 of terrace & patio areas] ft
