Surf Grove

A new check in and admin building for a new coastal campground in Tofino BC. The design brief is fairly utilitarian, trying to maximize efficiencies and utility as the campground needs change into the future. The concept was to minimize the interior, heated, space while utilizing deep overhangs and exterior circulation. Taking cues from a more Nordic aesthetic, a terracotta rich colour will clad the metal roof and stain the timber screens which articulate the surrounding deck passageways. One end is ached by an outdoor, sunken living room and fireplace for socializing between campers and the opposite for site check in and basic camp and surfing provisions. Currently the project is in Development Permit.
