Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite National Park

Fish Camp, California

Design through Construction Administration Services

Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite is a classic mountain resort situated two miles from Yosemite National Park's southern gate, surrounded by a noble evergreen forest and a rich range of Sierra activities and experiences.

Our task was the design/remodel of this new addition. The project includes a 20,300 sq ft two story addition to the North end of the existing building. The design retains the Mountain vernacular but enhances a slightly more modern appeal. The upper floor contains a new 10,000 sq ft modern conference facility with an expanded ballroom and three new conference rooms. Overlooking the majestic pines of the forest below, and surrounding the new conference facility, a new 3,000 sq ft deck at the upper floor was added to complement the conference space.

On the lower level of the addition, a new 14-room treatment spa and reconfigured office facility (9,700 sq ft) was constructed. The new spa, designed in the Mountain-Craftsman style, offers a full range of services from massage therapy to therapeutic paraffin treatments.

Ascent Spa at Tenaya Lodge was named one of the best in the west by Sunset magazine. It was designed with not just body health in mind, but also environmental health. From the soft flowing water feature in the spa entry to the Zen-inspired furnishings, the spa was carefully designed to facilitate comfort and restoration.

This addition and remodel of one of Yosemite's finest resorts was successfully completed through careful selection of materials, thoughtful and practical design solutions, and collaboration with all of our partners and consultants.

The project achieved LEED silver certification in 2010.
