Completed in 2011



Summer Camp!   Harkening of wood stoves, open trusses, big roofs, log cabins, whitewashed buildings and fences, indoor movies, church, bean-ball, marshmallows, candy bar canteens and regimented self-serve cafeteria food. Such is Camp St. Basil at Pigeon Lake Alberta.  The planning and design of this new 5000 sf kitchen and dining hall strove to achieve old memories of camp in order to create new memories.  Colors, texture, form and volume all combined to create a dining hall and multipurpose building and space that would be iconic for the overall camp complex and client. Strict energy guidelines and thermal efficiency objectives led to a self-sustaining building utilizing minimum energies.
