GDA designed an ecological bed & breakfast retreat in rural West Virginia along the renowned white water Gauley River. Located on a steeply sloped horseshoe bend, the design includes many locally provided renewable materials. Though not a LEED certified project, the design process followed LEED principles throughout.
The structure is super insulated, using local stone, wood and reclaimed metal siding. Guest rooms feature built-in cabinets and modern interiors, breaking ranks from the typically traditional look of b&bs. Lodge includes living roof, coconut husk water treatment system and geo-thermal heating and cooling systems.
