Idyllwilde Grand Hall
Surrounded by acres of green space with rolling hills, ravines and streambeds and wildlife corridors, Idyllwilde offers a ranch-like setting within the city. In keeping with the pastoral landscape, the Grand Hall, and all of the amenity buildings, were designed to resemble typical farm outbuildings.
The Grand Hall takes cues from the traditional cattle barn, with a soaring two-story center space flanked by “sheds.” High windows, often used in barns for light and ventilation, are used here to capture spectacular mountain views. A “silo” houses the staircase while other authentic barn details and rustic materials combine to create a rural façade for a truly grand space with all of the amenities neighbors expect.
