At the heart of Camp Hall is the Avian Commons, a thriving collection of small businesses and conveniences designed to help balance work with the necessities of daily life — connecting the workforce to everyday errands, to nature and to each other.
A built-in community
Found in the heart of Camp Hall, Avian Commons provides the resident workforce easy access to an array of everyday life necessities. Already taking shape, this community center currently includes:
- Basketball court
- Fitness area and playground
- Soccer field
- Volleyball court
It also features the Avian Pavilion, a waterside structure built to enhance visitors’ enjoyment of the outdoors.
Maintaining a natural environment
Camp Hall is committed to maintaining an environment that is authentic to the natural habitat of coastal South Carolina. 28% of the whole site will be preserved land devoted to natural growth, wildlife habitats, and features developed to maintain and improve a healthy ecosystem.
Utilizing a variety of innovative solutions such as replacing existing non-native Loblolly pines with native species, incorporating bioswales in stormwater treatment, and providing pollinator habitats, Camp Hall will support local ecosystems.
A dedication to sustainability
Plans call for the addition of a thriving collection of small businesses and conveniences right on-site, including:
- Convenience store
- Dry cleaning
- Fire station
- Fitness center
- Food services
- Gas station
- Health care
The C-store will also offer electric vehicle charging stations.
Miles of trails
A 15-plus-mile system of multi-use trails is being put in place to benefit both Camp Hall and the larger community by providing places for recreational activities such as walking, running, hiking, and biking, as well as easy access to engagement with nature.
With state-of-the-art manufacturing in a setting of vast natural beauty, the design concept of “Nature and the Machine” permeates the built environment. Like the vehicles and machines produced in Camp Hall, the Architecture is intended to embody precision, sleekness, and innovation.
With bird protection and awareness as a major focus for Camp Hall, the Architecture likewise found its inspiration. The building forms are abstract interpretations of the patterns, colors, and figures found in native species. The “Avian Pavilion” hovers over the lake greeting visitors with outspread wings, encouraging visitors to take refuge from the sun, birdwatch, and learn more about Camp Hall’s mission.
