NextGen Campgrounds

Claire Weisz designed new cabins that will feature in campgrounds throughout New York State.

“In need of new accommodations for its campers, Wildwood State Park called on New York City-based design firm WXY to design a cabin prototype for the parks department to build at the campground in Long Island, New York, and other parks throughout the state.

The parks department requested that the cabins be contemporary and sensible in design, while also embracing the great outdoors. In addition, they asked that the new structures complement existing cabins at the campgrounds found throughout the state…

Inside, the cabin is bright and cheery with plenty of natural light. The interior walls and floors are clad in unfinished natural wood to ensure maximum longevity and low maintenance. ‘The idea was to have no paint and no finishes, and let things silver out,’ says WXY’s principal Claire Weisz.”
