Spectrally selective Quantum Windows, radiant floor heating, a cold roof system that prevents ice dams, and closed cell foam insulation to prevent heat loss are some of the key sustainable features incorporated into the camp’s energy-efficient buildings.
The heart of the camp is the main residence, the Lake House, which has a stacked "cordwood wall" made from Douglas firs found on-site.
"In the western facade of the building the individual characters of the different units are most obvious, while in the eastern facade (seen here) their coherence and the cabin as a whole is more prominent," write the architects.
The green-roofed studio was reinforced to support the weight of wet soils.
Pig Rock Bothy and Inshriach Bothy are tow of the handcrafted structures that inspire artists who use it a residency spaces.

A "raked roof" promotes daylighting, while a 6Kw photovoltaic solar array with 4.8Kw battery storage generates clean energy. The front porch encourages socializing with the neighbors.
The outdoor spaces and roof deck are impressive and feature a living roof succulent garden.

The cabin is notable for its terrain-conscious materials: local stone lines the front facade and the grass-coated roof appears to grow directly from its surroundings.
The Shayan House takes full advantage of its canyon site.
“Often when we talk about sustainability we focus on the gadgetry, what makes things feasible off grid,” Moffitt says. “But to me there are more interesting things in passive design that rely on the available sun and wind.” An eight-panel solar array does chip in significantly, generating all the electricity the house needs.
A 1.4-kW solar array by Sharp and propane-powered in-floor radiant heating from Radiantec obviate any need to connect to municipal power.
From below, the volumes seem to cascade down the hillside. Windows light up in a dramatic pattern at night, a sharp contrast to their subtle shapes during the day.
Viewed from the hill above, the structure rises to peer out over the water while firmly anchored back to the ground.
As they follow the slope, each volume shifts slightly to capture different frames of the surrounding water and mountains. Large sliding glass doors provide access to both these expansive views and to green roof patios.
South Side/Garage-The home is designed as a U-Shape creating a courtyard around the large Live Oak Tree.  The site is designed to absorb 100% of the water that falls on the site.
Architect Will Winkelman and landscape architect Todd Richardson collaborated with a client, JT Bullitt, to design a house that blends into its surroundings in Steuben, Maine. The green roof gives the impression that “the ground just jumped onto the roof,” Richardson says.
Stained cedar, ipe, and concrete form the 2,500-square-foot home's modern palette. Indigenous wildflowers and native grasses grow on top of the structure; this planted roof also helps insulate the home and limited its energy needs.
