Lakeside at Black Butte Ranch

Hacker was exceptionally important to our success in receiving funding. Their vision and leadership throughout the community engagement process delivered an overwhelming “yes” vote.

Client Notes
Elevate the legacy of architectural excellence at Black Butte Ranch by replacing well-worn pool facility with world-class contemporary recreational and dining complex.

Designer Notes
With Lakeside, we set out to both honor and evolve the Northwest modern aesthetic of Black Butte Ranch. Because of the site's stunning setting, it was essential that the building be secondary to the landscape—that the architecture serve as an aperture for the site, making connections to the land stronger and more immediate.
