As Thanksgiving and the Holidays approach many of us may be doing vacations or weekend get aways. If I were in need of a cabin or weekend place, I would have to consider this project by Insite Design. I am not the “let’s go camping” type of guy, but if I could kick it here for a week I think I would be just fine. The house was built to be as functional and flexible as possible.
Base Camp is a compact, climate responsive and adaptable weekender, sitting off the land yet immersed within it. Robust and singular in form, it is multi-layered in interior detail. The elongated form creates a house that is one room wide, allowing views through the interior to the landscape beyond. Reinforcing the compact yet open feel, this blurs the edges between areas of the house and integrates the landscape into the interior.
