Camp Frio is a multifamily compound in a remote, grassy valley on the bank of the Frio River in the Texas Hill Country. The structures consist of a main house, meditation room over the garage/art studio, and two guest studio cottages. The main house and cottages are linked by an elevated walkway. A breezeway bookended by concealed slide doors bisects the main house, enabling alfresco dining most of the year. Screened porches in the front and rear envelope the living chambers. Secondary sleeping spaces occupy an attic above the main house, while the cottages feature open “kids’” lofts. The structures were constructed with readily available, local materials and fashioned by local tradesmen.
