Overlooking snow-capped Mt. Bachelor, the Caldera Springs Lake House & Pool and Fitness Building are the heart of this resort community. The buildings are a wonderful example of rustic “Cascade Heritage” architecture featuring a “bistro” restaurant, a living room for the adults, a game room/ family room for the children and a full array of exercise, fitness, and aquatic facilities. Together these buildings provide the social focus and gathering place for families and friends during their stay at Caldera Springs.
The architecture features timber structural elements, expansive ceilings with natural daylighting, copper roofs, and panoramic views to the surrounding landscape and lake. Covered terraces overlook man-made water features that start at the building and wind their way to the lake. Local natural boulders and stone veneer link the buildings to the site and the surrounding volcanic mountains.
Located at the edge of an expansive lake, the pool decks and swimming pool merge with the shoreline of the lake creating an “infinity” edge. Faux boulders reinforce the illusion that the pool and lake are a single body of water, and also form “grotto” areas for hot tubs. “Lava tube” tunnels and a slide with waterfall provide enjoyable areas for children to explore in a lively family atmosphere. Expansive glass opens the exercise rooms up to the views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
The Caldera Springs Lake House & Pool and Fitness Building are winners of the Building of America Award, honoring the 50 most important or innovative new construction projects within the region. Both buildings are featured in the 2009 Real Estate and Construction Review, Northwest Edition.
