Yavapai Lodge, Desert View Trading Port + General Store at Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon National Park, AZ
18,200 sq ft
Design through Construction, Administration Services

The renovation of the existing 18,200 sq ft lodge included, but was not limited to, a relocated check-in and newly remodeled restaurant dining facility. Closing in on 50 years of service, the lodge required more than a mere face lift. Programming changes brought new efficiency to a building suffering from years of ad-hoc needs. From the way guests check-in, to the way they order their meals, new technologies were integrated into the design. Modern stylistic changes blend into the mid-century modern era and with added touches of canyon styling, the lodge welcomes guests before a day on the rim.
