Algonquin Great Camp

Algonquin Great Camp

This vast lakefront site with an ensemble of historic log buildings was reconstituted as a family compound after an intervening period as a children’s camp. ERA refurbished the interior of the main lodge to highlight its expressive log construction details. The staircase’s intricately detailed log work gives the cottage a rustic, ranch-like feel, and complements the exposed log beams on the ceiling. In the adjacent ‘nest’ building, ERA brought natural light and a sense of airiness with the addition of new dormers, creating a comfortable and cozy four-season retreat.
