The integral relationship between the beauty of our natural world and the manmade is the basis for this major expansion of the Topnotch Resort.
The resort seems to be perched among the trees on a mountain plateau. This design concept is carried through to all scales of the project, from site to building to furnishings.
The architectural design forms a striking congruity with the stunning composition of nearby Mount Mansfield, echoing the landforms visible from the interior. At The Roost restaurant, handcrafted birdhouses and custom lighting fixtures adorn the space, celebrating the local fauna with a touch of whimsy.
Additional projects included the redesign of the formal restaurant, Flannel, the new signature restaurant Roost, renovations to guestrooms and conference facilities.Photography: Westphalen Studio
