A-Basin Lodge Addition

Keystone, Colorado

2009

Arapahoe Basin Ski area wants to expand their base lodege to accommodate additional ticketing space and food and beverage serving and seating. One of the primary design challenges was to maintain the integrity of the iconic A-Basin A-Frame lodge; the design solutions engage the A-frame as dormers or low additions and provide larger entry space and table views of the mountain without overpowering the original building’s design aesthetic. Sustainable design parameters primarly focused on limiting the site modifications, maintaining an existing structure, and reducing energy demands through space and envelope optimization. To date, some interior renovations have been completed while the additions are still under consideration by the client.
