Warm materials, classic design. Grand View Lodge challenged Nor-Son to design and build a new spa that looked as long-lived as their 100-year-old main building. Nor-Son chose a historically authentic Craftsman style that appeals to modern tastes. Traditional materials such as oak, fieldstone and timber add touches of timeless warmth. The rich brown exterior cedar siding and white trim perfectly match the original lodge.
A welcome home for guests. To make the spa an intimate, private space for guests, we painstakingly created the illusion that it had been converted from an old mansion home. Behind the modern fixtures, treatment rooms hint at former grand bedrooms. The relaxation room might have been an inviting living room. Even the retail space seems to preserve the aura of a welcoming parlor.
