No building type is more quintessential Louisianan than the camp. Weekend getaway, home base for hunting or fishing expeditions, family retreats; they serve different things to different people, and they take just as many forms.
Studio BKA is undertaking a fresh take on the camp, for a mysterious client who may or may not be Jason Statham from The Mechanic. A camp is an intersecting point for many types of Louisianans lives, and we are seeking to combine modern forms and materials with vernacular architecture, and also infusing sustainable values to study just how green a camp can get. With a program that includes generous entertaining areas with the capacity to host a large crew on holiday weekends, or a solo fishing weekend getaway from the NOLA grind.
Stay tuned for updates on how traditional Louisiana archetypes can blend with modern materials and styles and incorporate modern efficient building practices to preserve the beautiful coastal landscapes that gave rise to the concept of the Louisiana camp.
