Project Description

The Camp

The Camp is an open-air, non-traditional nature/adventure-themed destination for health and outdoor enthusiasts, featuring shops and eateries that cater to a higher-end target market than its neighbor and predecessor, The Lab. The contemporary, earthy architecture with smooth, yet angular lines, combine with a mixture of corrugated steel and wood exteriors that complement its minimalist landscaping of rock gardens and redwood trees. Site coordination with the contractor, Bauer and Wiley Architects, as well as CAMCO Pacific, City of Costa Mesa and the local water department proved to be quite involved. Project challenges included compliance with a city ordinance requiring off-site drainage to storm drains, which the site did not have. The Fuscoe staff devised a unique solution that directed stormwater to underground storage facilities, which permit the drainage to percolate back into the groundwater, thus satisfying the City and effectively controlling the project’s water pollution.
