With its post-and-beam construction, expansive spaces, respect for the natural landscape and integration of indoor/outdoor living, The Lodge at Torrey Pines pays homage to the California Craftsman style of architecture of the early 1900s. The Craftsman style was an offshoot of the Arts & Crafts Movement, itself a response to the Victorian excesses of ornamentation and patterns, which emphasized clean lines, open spaces and rough hewn materials. The Lodge’s design complements the pristine beauty of the area’s pines and sandstone formations, with beam details that echo the windswept Torrey Pines themselves. World-renowned Craftsman expert Randell L. Makinson of Pasadena’s Gamble House Trust supervised the resort’s design team to ensure the authenticity of The Lodge’s Craftsman style.
