Marmot Cabin is a lodge building in the Mt. Hood National Forest 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 building 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, ample daylighting and unique detailing create a strong sense of place with a modern lodge feel and a memorable learning experience for young campers.
Completed work for this project also includes new sleeping yurts for the students with covered entries featuring a custom scissor truss and built-in benches that function as a mud room as well as covered space for outdoor gathering.
