Tordrillo Mountain Lodge (TML) is a remote heli ski and fishing lodge near the base of the impressive Tordrillo Mountains in Alaska. The project is about 45 minutes west of Anchorage via small plane or helicopter. This backcountry project includes an upgrade and an addition to an existing rustic lodge (Lodge 1) and the construction and detailing of four luxury cabins(Riverside and Lakeside), an employee housing building, a mess hall to serve the cabins (Moose Hall), a generator building, a fuel tank enclosure, a well house, and full infrastructure upgrades.
The Lakeside Cabins are constructed of square-cut, Nordic pine logs from Finland. The intent is to create a rustic yet contemporary, luxury space for guests to enjoy. Each cabin features two bedrooms to accommodate two twin beds or one full bed each. The design incorporates cove RGB LED light strips in the bedrooms to create ambient light that can be adjusted to reflect the colors of the northern lights. The structures include two bathrooms and a full living room with a stone fireplace and basalt hearth to complement the architecture of the space. They also house a kitchenette and bar area accented with red oak custom cabinetry. Architecture by Z Architects. Z Architects and Los Griegos Studio collaborated on the interiors.
The Riverside Cabins are also constructed of square-cut, Nordic pine logs from Finland. The Riverside Cabins are more modest in size than the Lakeside counterpart and include one spacious bedroom to accommodate two twin beds, a luxury bathroom and a lake facing living room with small desk and bar/coffee area for guest use. The architecture and interior design were completed by Z Architects.
