Text description provided by the architects. The project is an assemblage of indoor and outdoor gathering spaces with lobby, storage, kitchen , and bathroom functions. The structure is sited on the edge of a placid lake and serves as the origin to the park experience. The language of the structure is intended to be familiar. The materials of stone, wood and copper are common and readily encoded as harmonious with the natural setting.

Ground Floor Plan

The frame of the building is a clear agenda of timber frame repetition. This frame is the constant of the structure embracing gatherings inside and out. The spaces are seen as one through a common syntax. The wall planes are used as the expressions of invitations and motivations of movement. The wall are the drama woven into the drone of the structure. The stone walls serve as a threshold to the spaces while providing frame and focus. Copper walls insert through an offset in the stone wall to guide visitors to the structure. The result is a layered façade which grows out from the core structure.

The project is an amalgam of what is known, understood and expected with moments of revelation. The common language can be appreciated by all and understood through consideration by some.
