Set on 103 acres on picturesque Coos Bay in Southern Oregon, Bay Point Landing is an outdoor resort offering Scandinavian-inspired cabins, Airstreams, and full-amenity RV sites. The architects, OFFICEUNTITLED, took cues from the local landscape and weather to shape the site. “Seeing the hills of the dunes bounce around each other helped me design the roof [of the clubhouse], which is tiled up to emulate them,” says principal architect Christian Robert. “The angled layout was intentional to help protect our guests from the wind.”
Portland-based interior design firm JHL Design was brought on to outfit the interiors of the cabins and communal spaces with a simple look that would vibe with the architecture. “Given the modern aesthetic and youthful appeal, our design intent was to select items that had clean lines while also adding some texture to the spaces,” shares principal Holly Freres. “It also was of huge importance that everything was extremely durable given its hospitality application and coastal location.”
The angular clubhouse appears to hover above the sand. “We wanted the sand to be able to continually flow beneath it,” shares Robert. “When you are traveling in an RV, a lot of times there aren’t many communal areas to hang out in, so we essentially pulled [the clubhouse] apart to create more common space between the buildings. And the long lines of the building have large windows to help bring the outside in.” The innovative design of Bay Point Landing hasn’t gone unnoticed—it was recently named one of Hospitality Design’s top 20 hotel openings in 2019.
“The beauty of Bay Point is that this place is magical. When you’re here, you’re able to reconnect with nature, with yourself, with your family,” says Robert. “You’re spending time outdoors and coming back to modern comforts. We want guests to [walk] away feeling whole.”
