3,640 SF (Conference Center)




Pilgrim Firs is a bucolic 90-acre camp located on the Washington peninsula, which serves as an oasis of creativity and community for its users.  The site includes a lodge, a number of small cabins, and an abundance of space for outdoor recreation.


As part of the camp’s aim to expand and refresh its facilities, ARC Architects has designed a concept for a versatile conference center, which could accommodate group events such as musical performances and classes, all while keeping users connected to nature through panoramic views of the surrounding woods.  A small number of artists’ cabins are also included in this study, which are carefully designed to suit the landscape, and highlight camp users’ sculpture, which adorns the site.
