matryoshka lodge
second year studio


While investigating the site and its landscape, three distinct features can be identified, the forest, the river, and the cove. With this in mind, I choose three native species that exist in these three micro-landscapes and designed an architecture that existed in the common space of all three landscapes. While investigating how these layers interacted with each other, the theme of “the edge”  emerged. Fascinated with the layering of the landscape and the edges or thresholds between them, I designed the main lodge to act similar to the landscape, three shells that interact with each other and create thresholds that interact with each program and space.
