This project is about using extremely succinct moves to radically transform and ennoble an undistinguished old building, making it into a high-performing centerpiece of a precious 180 acre camp landscape in the hills.  This run-down building has served thousands of campers over its 55 year history. It has been closed off from its context, effectively disconnecting itself from the outdoors for over half a century. With a limited budget and the virtual certainty of triggering significant environmental regulations with new construction, it was decided to try to save this underperforming, unremarkable building.
