AutoCamp opened its third location in Yosemite, California in June 2019. The innovative hospitality brand has redefined alternative lodging by blending the traditional outdoor experience of camping with the service and design of a boutique hotel.
After the phenomenal success of AutoCamp Russian River, our firm once again joined forces with San Francisco’s Geremia Design to design an unparalleled lodging experience in Yosemite. Our scope of work for the project includes site design, including a 4,000 square foot Clubhouse and 102 customized accommodations including Airstreams, Luxury Tents and Cabin Suites.
Nestled on 35 acres in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the property will feature a 4,000 square foot clubhouse with reception, meeting space, indoor/outdoor lounge areas, and a curated marketplace offering artisanal food and beverages. The clubhouse includes a scenic roof deck and an outdoor swimming pool. Accommodations include luxury tents, cabin suites and deluxe Airstream trailers, custom designed by our firm and built in the USA by Airstream, Inc. Five ADA suites are designed by Los Angeles’s M-Rad Architecture.
With the iconic Airstream as starting point, we looked to modernist masterpieces for inspiration. The resulting clean, rectilinear planes of the clubhouse complement the surrounding landscape and set the tone for the polished rural retreat. For the interiors, Geremia Design took cues for the material palate from the spectacular environs, mixing sophisticated contemporary lines with rough-hewn materials. Large-scale, low-slung seating areas with fire pits are skillfully situated throughout the clubhouse, showcasing striking views of the natural surroundings and encouraging a communal experience that honors the spirit and tradition of camping.
