Salvation Army, Camp Mihaska Lodge
Camp Mihaska hosts a 10-week summer camp for young people and year-round sessions for senior citizens and families of Salvation Army members. To expand opportunities to host conferences and meetings, Christner designed the new dining lodge after national park lodges. We used generous windows punctuated by massive stone piers to bring abundant light into the interior. A two-sided stone fireplace dominates the space and separates the dining area from the flexible meeting areas. Our design used sustainably harvested materials, including naturally-felled Douglas Fur trees.
