WELCOME TO THE SUMMIT

With deep roots planted in the community—coming up on 50 years since Camp & Camp was established—we felt a re-introduction to our work (and growth) was in order. 

My father William Camp, A.I.A. and I formed Camp & Camp out of a shared love for integrated design and quality environments through an innovative marriage of architecture and landscape design. We’ve been fortunate to be involved in the planning and design of thousands of large-scale communities, complexes, urban environments, and custom residential gardens in the S.F. Bay Area and throughout the United States and Asia. 

APRIL IS WORLD LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MONTH 

April is World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM), an international celebration of designed spaces around the world. This month-long celebration of landscape architecture and design, established by the American Society of Landscape Architects, aims to demonstrate how landscape architecture affects our daily lives. 

In celebration of WLAM, we have picked two of our dynamic public and private projects, recently designed by the talented team at Camp & Camp. 

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: SARANAP VILLAGE 
Camp and Camp is honored to handle the urban planning and landscape design for Saranap Village—a mixed-use revitalization project located in West Walnut Creek.

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: DRUE RESIDENCE  
With its magnificent pool and spa setting, outdoor kitchen, vegetable gardens and meandering pathways, the Drue Residence in Lafayette is an outdoor entertainer’s dream. 

AROUND THE CAMPFIRE
WITH PAMELA C.A. WINTHER 

Camp and Camp is fortunate to have Pamela as a Senior Design Director for the last 8 years, and she was recently promoted to Principal in the firm. Pamela’s extensive experience—including landscape architectural design of public and institutional projects, hospitality sites, residential estates, hospitals, public parks, recreational facilities and schools—allows her to serve as a highly creative, competent and careful guide to Camp and Camp’s associates and projects. 

Having previously worked for leading urban design firms throughout the SF Bay Area, a consultant for the City of Walnut Creek, a landscape architect with the U.S. Forest Service in Lake Tahoe, and even a former adjunct college professor—Pamela approaches each project with a holistic perspective. She believes it’s the degree of customer service that Camp and Camp brings to its clients that differentiates them from other firms.

Her career in landscape architecture came about very organically. A lifetime nature lover and hiking and camping enthusiast, Pamela has always been interested in art and the outdoors. In our first “Around the Campfire” chat, Pamela shares what inspires her work.
