The Crow’s Nest is a ski cabin located at 7,080 feet elevation, on the mountain of the same name in the Sugar Bowl Ski Resort. Anchored on the slope, and responsive to its setting, the cabin design explores the intersection of classic modern aesthetics, craft, and the extreme climatic conditions of the site.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSugar Bowl is located at historic Donner Summit in the Sierra Nevada range. The Ski Resort, founded in 1939, is one of the oldest in America. The climate and topography around Sugar Bowl makes for unusually heavy snowfall, and its relatively small residential village (112 home sites) is snow-bound through the winter. The Crow’s Nest is perched on one of the highest sites in the resort and is a true ski-in, ski-out cabin, being at a substantially higher elevation than many of the ski lifts.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe clients, who have four young children, charged BCV with the goal of creating a cabin that would be a gathering place for generations. Social space was prioritized over bedroom space. The qualities of “nesting” and entertaining were discussed. A particular requirement was to orient the house to take advantage of the privacy created by the uphill forest, in order to celebrate the house’s presence on the wooded slope with a maximum of transparency.Save this picture!Section AThe ground floor is defined by an axial nave of arched openings through the heavy board formed concrete diaphragms that establish the structural grid of the cabin. The ski-in/ski-out entry, sauna, ski room, laundry and movie screening area are all spaces designed to be nearly or completely buried in snow, with paths dug to the access points – a tradition at Sugar Bowl. The concrete ground floor is reminiscent of the old ground levels of European ski chalets, while the cantilevered deck supports emphasize the residence’s perch on the land.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteUpward movement through the house is accomplished with a three-story steel staircase on the North side, framed in a giant window with mountain views to the North. The window contrasts with the other relatively small, ‘punched’ openings on this façade, and allows for a sense of transparency all the way through the house. The stair is seen as both the social crossroads of the house and a tactile expression of the craft and exhilaration the architects strove for throughout.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe main level is organized around a double height living room, anchored by the chimney mass that grows out of the concrete plinth below. This room brings the size and scale of the forest inside through both views to the surrounding evergreens and interior log columns that hold up a great cantilevered roof. Off this central space, the low-ceilinged dining room and library provide opportunities to socialize as a group or to break off into smaller gatherings. The cantilevered deck, sheltered by the projecting roof structure, is an extension of this floor and stretches out over the slope on three sides.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe roof is composed of a radiating series of glulam beams designed to take the massive snow load of over 400 lbs per square foot live load. The roof form holds the snow it receives thus creating another nest. This approach was taken both for additional insulation and to be able to access three sides of the house with a minimum of concern for snow and ice impacting those sides. The extension of the roof over the Southwest-facing deck shades the house in the summer and allows for passive solar gain in the winter.Save this picture!Floor Plan 3The upper level of the house is the most private, containing four bedrooms two principal bedroom suites and two bunk rooms. These rooms are arranged around the music loft which overlooks the living room and stairwell, providing a sense of connection to the social activity of the main level.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe Crow’s Nest is designed to express the materials of which it is constructed with an emphasis on natural finishes in the belief that the beauty of nests is rooted in the way materials come together to form an integrated whole. As a nest, the house is a product of the landscape that surrounds it, yet distinctly and cohesively recognizable as a discreet form within it.Project gallerySee allShow lessModern Masters Of Materiality: An Interview With Australia’s Tonkin Zulaikha GreerArticlesThe Paris Debate: Must Preservation Inhibit Urban Renewal?Articles Share “COPY” United Statescenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2013 Photographs “COPY” Architects: BCV Architects Area Area of this architecture project The Crow’s Nest / BCV Architects Houses Save this picture!© Bruce Damonte+ 26 Share Area:  5600 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBCV ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNordenUnited StatesPublished on July 08, 2014Cite: “The Crow’s Nest / BCV Architects” 08 Jul 2014.

Inquiry into murdered Indigenous women loses bid for two disputed RCMP files

first_imgInquiry commissioners Qajaq Robinson and Brian Eyolfson. (APTN)The Canadian PressThe National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls has lost a court bid for access to two RCMP files the Mounties refuse to hand over.The RCMP gave the inquiry more than 100 files but concluded that disclosing the two disputed ones could compromise ongoing investigations.The Mounties then filed certificates with the Federal Court under the Canada Evidence Act, which allows for a hearing to decide whether secrecy will prevail.In its ruling, the court sides with the RCMP, saying it is satisfied the refusal to hand over the files was not because of a fear of embarrassment or revelation of misconduct by force members.The inquiry recently delivered its final report calling for fundamental changes in the areas of health, security, justice and culture affecting Indigenous women and girls.The inquiry’s mandate expires at the end of the month, and there was no immediate word on whether it would appeal the Federal Court ruling.last_img read more
