Architecture Monday

Can you see it?

To say this building nestles into the landscape is pretty much an understatement.  Built on a farm and overlooking a conservation park, this lodge hotel of only five rooms presses itself into the adjacent landscape, using its undulating wood roof and low profile to blend into the glacial plains.

Come around to the front side and the building and the wood roof slats pull apart to become a screen, sheltering the generous windows that let the views soar. Equally graceful lattice arcs down from the roof to shelter and delineate a patio of sorts.

Wonderfully whimsical and enticing.  Best of all, despite being a luxury “destination hotel” it never attempts to call attention to itself and dominate the area.  It knows where it sits and celebrates it.  Nicely done.
