South Carolina Hunting Lodge

Ace Basin, SC
with Reggie Gibson, Architect

New hunting and fishing lodge in remote region of Coastal South Carolina.¬† The project references built precedents from the region without being limited to historicism. ¬†Sleeping huts are linked to the primary gathering hall but have their own levels of seclusion, offering varying degrees of social engagement. The entire structure is raised far above the ground for flood protection, but the function of each space is articulated by it’s relationship to the ground. The sleeping huts are closed and private, and therefore grounded. The grand central hall is an open, social space and floats above the landscape with an open, light aspect.
