Yellowstone Youth Campus

National Park Service

The National Park Service feels strongly about the design potential for new buildings at the Yellowstone National Park Youth Campus. The design must reflect the historic importance and protect the wondrous beauty of the setting. The resulting design competition revealed the perfect solution for this multi-building campus with a lofty goal of Living Building status.

The plan involves doubling the current capacity with new buildings comprised of three dormitories, a youth hall, and a combined facility for administration, the industrial kitchen, dining hall, and classrooms. The sustainable design features are numerous: Ultra-high efficiency air source heat pump (ASHP) that is capable of simultaneous production of hot and cold water using full heat recovery, heat recovery from the kitchen; PV, radiant floor heat, natural ventilation in dormitories and classrooms, active displacement ventilation, and rainwater harvesting and reuse.
