California studio Anacapa Architecture has made a luxury campground in Sonoma County that options customised tents and Airstream trailers, along with an open-air clubhouse for guest verify-in and socialising.
The AutoCamp web page is situated in the scenic Russian River Valley, which is about 90 minutes north of San Francisco. Created by Santa Barbara-primarily based Anacapa Architecture – with interior decor chosen by San Francisco’s Geremia Style – the campground sits inside a forested landscape with grassy meadows. The hilly area is also recognized for its vineyards, which lie to the east.
AutoCamp Russian River is one particular of 3 glamping web-sites created by California true-estate firm Mesa Lane Partners, which aims to fuse the “adventure of camping with attractive modern day design and style”. The corporation opened its very first AutoCamp in Santa Barbara in 2013, and runs yet another web page close to Yosemite National Park.
“Inspired by the wanderlust and adventure of the fantastic American road trip, AutoCamp is an unparalleled luxury camping expertise for individuals who enjoy the outdoors,” the corporation described in a statement. “It is camping, but with the comfort level of a boutique hotel.”
The Russian River web page, which opened in the fall of 2016, options 24 customised Airstreams and 10 luxury tents, along with a clubhouse that consists of a reception lobby, dining region and gathering spaces.
The metal trailers and canvas tents are fitted with higher-high quality decor, such as Casper mattresses, organic throw blankets, comfy bathrobes and stainless steel Coleman coolers. Outdoors every single unit, the group placed a fire pit and grill, exactly where guests can cook up dinner and hang out beneath the stars.

Overlooking a motor court, the open-air clubhouse sits atop a concrete base and is topped with a flat, overhanging roof. The pavilion’s low-profile contrasts with the intense verticality of the surrounding redwood trees.
Components such as rough-sawn cedar, board-formed concrete and blackened steel had been selected for their durability, and are intended to age naturally more than time.
Whilst envisioning the clubhouse, the design and style group took cues from two iconic functions of architecture. “Drawing inspiration from the iconic Barcelona Pavilion by Mies van der Rohe and the Kaufmann Property by Richard Neutra, the Clubhouse is strongly influenced by modern day, minimalist design and style,” the architects mentioned.
The interior of the three,000-square-foot (279 square metres) pavilion options an earthy colour palette and streamlined decor. A cordwood wall overlooks a lounge region, exactly where chairs are gathered about a suspended steel fireplace. Also visible in this space is a “spider-leg” steel beam – a beam-and-column configuration created well-known by Neutra – that is meant to mediate the passage from inside to out.
No matter if taking shelter inside or enjoying a drink on the patio, guests are meant to really feel a robust connection to the wilderness all through the pavilion.
“The Clubhouse blurs the boundary in between indoors and outdoors, offering immersive views of the surrounding redwood trees and adjacent creek,” the group mentioned. “The pavilion was made to boost the sensory expertise of the surrounding landscape.”
Luxury camping accommodations have turn into increasingly common in current years. Other projects involve the SJCC Glamping Resort in South Korea by Atelier Transform, which options a collection of brightly coloured tents, and the rentable Getaway micro cabins, which are geared toward stressed-out city dwellers on the US East Coast.
