Under the guidance of el dorado inc, a group of six graduate architecture students from Kansas State University's Design+Make studio designed and constructed a Shower and Restroom Facility for Camp Daisy Hindman just outside Topeka, Kansas. This project is the result of a collaboration that is now entering its third year, continuing to connect tomorrow’s architects to mission-driven work as they are just beginning their careers.
The Shower Facility replaces a defunct subterranean pool and centralizes bathing facilities for a number of campgrounds at Camp Daisy. The new 2400 square foot stained cedar facility accommodates a changing and shower room function throughout the day, allowing campers to wash-up and dress in a well-ventilated, well-lit space.
The addition of this modern facility in a unique, rural landscape promotes building a relationship with nature while remaining connected to the world at large.
