Project: Camp Grimes
Architect of Record: LaBella Associates
Location: Nebo, NC

Set in its lofty perch this structure spreads its wings and welcomes campers into its voluminous open hall and activity stations. Modern and minimal, the building is comfortably clad in lap siding with a regional stone base to meet the ground while shed roofs gently overlap like feathers on a bird, trim tabs on a wing. A formal flag court reinforces the values inherent in the scouting experience and marks a cross axis that elevates the importance of the building’s central pass though. Environmentally, low windows to the west provide natural ventilation, taking advantage of the prevailing wind, while high remote controlled windows to the east provide cross ventilation and natural light. Efficient solar radiant floor heat provides warmth during cooler months. Large covered gathering areas, an integrated climbing wall, front and rear porches and ample lawn areas all contribute to the ensemble cast that makes up the heart of this very special place.
