DESIGN CHALLENGE

Located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge is the heart of a complex of buildings managed by Dartmouth College and the Dartmouth Outing Club. Over the past four years, Maclay Architects has worked with Dartmouth to implement the complete masterplan, which includes five bunkhouses, Lodge replacement and enhanced outdoor gathering areas and amenities. These improvements at Moosilauke will preserve and enhance the tradition for future generations. The campus implementation began with bunkhouse replacements made possible by the volunteer efforts and donations from the Class of ‘65, ‘67, ‘68 and’74.

APPROACH

The rustic timberframe cabins each provide bunks and a small common area with woodstoves for gathering and games, and composting toilets.

OUTCOME

The Moosilauke experience is a quintessential experience for all Dartmouth students, and many alumni continue to visit Moosilauke throughout their lives. The bunkhouse projects offer much improved rustic lodging for visitors of all ages. These bunkhouses were made possible by class donations and extensive volunteer efforts.
