Elizabeth Freeman Calabrese, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP
Burlington, Vermont USA
My passion is creating soulful and timeless built environments where people can relax, rejuvenate, contemplate, create, enjoy their family and friends, celebrate a sense community and connect to a world much greater than ones-self.
Safari Resort in Laikipia County, Kenya.
The living room in the "Party House" promotes gathering and a sense of community at the resort. The organic shapes of the gable windows and stone fireplace bring the outdoors inside.
The perched dining room overlooks the living room. The thatched roof and soft plaster walls embrace guests and offer a sense of protection from the elements.
