project overview

The 53-unit Discovery Park Lodge, a publicly funded affordable housing complex located in Bend, Oregon, caters to residents 55 and older. Amenities of the three-story 76,000 square foot complex, which features one- and two-bedroom apartments, include underground parking, a fitness room, library, computer areas and outdoor balconies. To enhance social interaction, the design incorporated community rooms for resident events and a more intimate reading room. There is also a welcoming downstairs lobby evocative of the great American lodges of the National Parks Service, that together with a large common room, warming kitchen and state-of-the-art audio-visual amenities on an upper floor, is available for resident use. A roof-mounted photovoltaic array was incorporated to support most of the building’s hot water needs.
