Description
A 12,000-square-foot, two-story, timber-frame, wood-shingle-clad, wood-shingle-roof lodge and restaurant with 45 cabins, ski-touring facility and conference center, dock, pergola, and swimming pool with spa.

Approach
The owners wished to expand and renovate a hundred-year-old lodge and selected cabins, construct new cabins, create a swimming pool and spa, and build a ski-touring facility and conference center. Architectural guidelines develop a vernacular that integrates the older structures with the new while a new site plan featuring a long radial pergola and an axial porte-cochere binds the structures, creating a “sense of place”.
