This 36-room boutique hotel creates a serene atmosphere. The hotel is sited in a reflecting pool of water, mimicking the great lake nearby, and recalling the larger regional landscape. A few simple architectural concepts bring the streamlined forms together to admit a shaft of light accentuated by a cascading cliffside water feature. One is drawn from the entrance through a sky-lit atrium to this dramatic space—an experience devoid of distractions and eliciting a reaction of calming meditation on the visitor. The theme of simple serenity is augmented with details such as the roof garden, and a sky-lit meditation space.
