This one of a kind contemporary fishing lodge draws together the tough environment and indigenous materials to create a: “wow, so cool” development – so says our client. He’d originally suggested an A frame structure but we confirmed the site on a steep bluff overlooking the Crowsnest River suited a strong horizontal line to suit the building’s proposed rugged perch. We designed the Lodge with simple lines and a mono roof pitch. We incorporated natural and local materials including indigenous Sandstone pulled from site and reclaimed timbers from a WWII hanger for post and beams and as finish flooring. The building includes geothermal, and a highly-effective smokeless wood burning fireplace. The three bedrooms have lots of windows to maximize the views and natural light.
