Blue Hill Eco Camp

MWAI were invited to explore the potential for the development of an ecological camp-site in the St Helena. The camp site is located in the Blue Hill district, in an area of Green Heartland (protected local ecology). The site is relatively remote. The project is required to be low tech, contextural and sustainable - minimising impact on the site and surrounding landscape. Key design considerations were local sourcing of materials, simple construction methods, environmental sensitivity and practicality.

MWAI out and about

MWAI headed over to the Royal Academy on Friday evening to catch the Sensing Space: Architecture Reimagined exhibition. We especially enjoyed Li Xiaodong's labrinth of twig screens that sometimes lead to dead-ends or the inner courtyard where we had great fun on the pebbled garden. Thank you RA!
