Waechter Architecture converts a schoolhouse, nestled in the scenic Columbia River Gorge, into a boutique hotel.

The Society Hotel Bingen is a hotel and spa located in the historic Columbia River Gorge.

Sited near the riverfront yet separated by a series of industrial facilities and within a residential setting, Waechter Architecture’s design negotiates the context by maximising the hotel’s relationship to the natural landscape and using the massing of the new “cabin ring” and “spa building” to edit out the middle ground view. Visitors are presented with a double perspective - the close view of the courtyard’s garden and the far view of the landscape - providing a sense of retreat.


This project has been longlisted in the hospitality building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
