The Lodge at Nakoma

Built: 2015

Location: Clio, California

As the first phase in the Nakoma Resort’s efforts to add amenities and lodging, CATHEXES was asked to provide a new hotel and commercial square footage to a 5 acre site at the entry point of the golf course.  Balancing a tight schedule with local agency requirements, a 42 room hotel and an adjacent mixed-use building met all interested parties requests and desires.

The Lodge was designed to be highly efficient from a framing standpoint to ensure speed of construction, and to control costs.  Composing the envelope to add a sense of elegance became ever more important with a repetitive and simple layout.  The composition used a raw materiality – shifting back and forth between steel, wood and concrete.

Complementing the Lodge is the Marketplace, which is designed to serve a small resort market and restaurant on the ground level.  The second level will serve as much needed apartment living for the local workforce.
