Camp Shalom — Malibu, CA

Lehrer Architects

Camp Shalom has served thousands of campers over its 55 year history. The scope of the building includes an articulated spatial steel frame that ties together the two wings of the 3,700 square ft. dining hall, and supports a new large skylight, illuminating the site’s spaces with plenty of light. A high deck was also added to accommodate large or small group meetings. The seismic bracing elements generated an unexpected and enticing intricacy embraced by the design team as the winning strategy combining the structural demands and client’s vision.
