Wilderness Family Retreat
Remote compound required significant logistics & hydroelectric system.
This pristine 400-acre remote family compound is surrounded by Crown land and sensitive eco-systems. The owners wished to maintain the natural setting with a small footprint and minimal environmental impact. Designed by Olson-Kundig Architects, the simple functional design of exposed steel and wood frame buildings intentionally reflects the rugged surroundings. The logistics of building such a remote compound was significant. Stonemark managed the offsite construction of the structures, barging them to location and the design, engineering and construction of a private 400KW hydroelectric system. Power is generated by diverting a river through turbines to a complete electrical distribution system that supplies the facilities.
