INSPIRATION

The Basecamp buildings are a re-interpretation of the traditional mountain dwelling. The building mass is broken down into simple, archetypal forms that reference historical building typologies seen during the early days of settlement in Canmore and other mountain villages. The materials used on the exterior are locally sourced and are in keeping with the materials traditionally used, including vertical and horizontal wood cladding and rundlestone masonry for the ‘chimney’ element. The windows frame the mountains in memorable ways, ensuring the landscape has a strong presence from within.
 
In each residence an emphasis is placed on community spaces. A central, elevated island on the main floor allows for an extended prep space while cooking and is re appropriated at dinnertime into a large farm table capable of seating all of the lodgers at once. From the courtyard each dwelling has a patio and a dedicated space for gear storage. A roof top hot tub provides a great place to relax, reflect and star gaze after a day of experiencing the splendours of the Rocky Mountains.
