Old School New

How do we create spaces that embody the essence of place? Join the design team for the Society Hotel’s new Columbia River Gorge outpost to explore how setting, history, and intention guided their design process. Learn about how this unique hospitality project including a hotel, spa, subterranean dome and old school gymnasium took form. Come hear how we married a historic renovation with contemporary architecture, utilized the idea of “edited panorama” and cultivated nostalgic feelings to create a not so typical retreat space.
