“Dramatic light creates a strong visual presence.”
At its heart, Norview Lodge is a simple cabin in the woods.
Set on a cultivated site at the edge of a natural Carolinian forest, the building’s wood structure and cladding allow it to fit easily into its rustic setting. The design of the building draws on the vernacular architecture of the surrounding farming community. Low in scale with large, sheltering roofs, the building reflects the modest, industrial buildings of the area while maintaining a residential nature.
The eight home areas each open onto a series of courtyards that face the site’s forest setting. Community spaces, including a double-height chapel and lounge, are grouped within a central volume whose use of dramatic light creates a strong visual presence from the road.
