Marmot Cabin is a lodge building to be used as a summer camp for the Audubon Society of Portland. The facility replaces an existing cabin in disrepair to allow more room for campers and staff. The project emphasizes strong connections to the outdoors with a series of glazed doors leading to a deck overlooking the surrounding forest. Natural wood, large vaulted ceilings and ample daylighting create a strong sense of place with a modern lodge feel.
Completed work for this project includes new sleeping yurts for the students with covered entries featuring a custom scissor truss and built-in benches that functions as a mud room as well as room for outdoor gathering.
