Architect Visit: Camp Charlie by Wheeler Kearns

Julie Carlson August 07, 2009

Chicago-based Wheeler Kearns recently completed this second home and artist’s studio set on eight acres of rolling Indiana farmland. “The scale, siting, and design vocabulary are rooted in the vernacular,” they say. “Communal spaces are wrapped with floor-to-ceiling window walls, affording long views of the open meadows. The simple forms, materials (painted wood siding, concrete floors, douglas fir plywood), and modest scale are complementary and consistent with the program and place of this humble project.” Photography by Tom Rossiter.
