AutoCamp Yosemite

M-Rad Inc. as Designers

AutoCamp, Yosemite, is a modern and stylish outdoor hotel experience that makes connecting with the great outdoors easy for everyone. The site, which includes five 280-square-foot ADA suites, fits right in within the “glamping” trend that has flipped traditional camping as we know it, on its head. Through offering this alternative method of sleeping outdoors, campers are able to both enjoy luxury accommodations as well as the natural beauty around them. In this way, visitors can escape the hustle and bustle of urban life without sacrificing modern comforts.

 

Although each suite is compact, clever spatial planning and minimalist design packs in both style and amenities equivalent to a 5-Star boutique hotel experience. Accommodating a luxury experience within a smaller square footage is a practice in strategic design and also proves that you don’t need a massive space to feel pampered. Inspired by mid-century modernity, the high-end design has a contemporary flair, featuring classic lines and materials including natural woods, metals, and marble for a touch of old-world luxe. The neutral color palette of black, white, grey, and varying shades of brown seamlessly connects the interior with the exterior.  

 

Like any hotel experience, comfort is key, and M-Rad’s design delivers it in spades. Each of the suites is outfitted with air conditioning; a European bathroom with a modern shower; a queen size bed with a custom skylight overhead for stargazing at night; integrated speakers; Apple TV; and a full kitchen with a stove, sink, fridge, and microwave. The kitchen casework transitions into the living space and custom storage solutions which are integrated into the framework of the unit.

AUTOCAMP YOSEMITE

ANACAPA as Architects

After the phenomenal success of AutoCamp Russian River, our firm once again joined forces with San Francisco’s Geremia Design to design an unparalleled lodging experience in Yosemite. Our scope of work for the project includes site design, including a 4,000 square foot Clubhouse and 102 customized accommodations including Airstreams, Luxury Tents and Cabin Suites.

Nestled on 35 acres in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the property will feature a 4,000 square foot clubhouse with reception, meeting space, indoor/outdoor lounge areas, and a curated marketplace offering artisanal food and beverages. The clubhouse includes a scenic roof deck and an outdoor swimming pool. Accommodations include luxury tents, cabin suites and deluxe Airstream trailers, custom designed by our firm and built in the USA by Airstream, Inc. Five ADA suites are designed by Los Angeles’s M-Rad Architecture.

With the iconic Airstream as starting point, we looked to modernist masterpieces for inspiration. The resulting clean, rectilinear planes of the clubhouse complement the surrounding landscape and set the tone for the polished rural retreat. For the interiors, Geremia Design took cues for the material palate from the spectacular environs, mixing sophisticated contemporary lines with rough-hewn materials. Large-scale, low-slung seating areas with fire pits are skillfully situated throughout the clubhouse, showcasing striking views of the natural surroundings and encouraging a communal experience that honors the spirit and tradition of camping.
