The approach for the project was based on memory, contrast, and the play between public and private spaces. Placement of small buildings in different parts of the site recalls fond memories of time spent at summer cabins on the East Coast. Each building looks back and into the woods as well as forward and out to the meadow. This duality informs the use of the sleeping cabins with the modesty and introspection at the rear and the quiet engagement of the sitting rooms at the front. The sleeping cabins flank a central building used for dining and gathering. The collective setting draws together family and friends while affording the ability to retreat into privacy when needed.
