Montgomery Bell State Park Inn
Architect of Record: EOA Architects
A new hotel and convention center adjacent to a lake in the state park. Native Crab Orchard stone is used on the exterior. Every guestroom has a view of the lake and a private balcony. A steel and wood walkway leads from the restaurant out into the treetops.
The entry tower is finished in stone and sheet metal, and recalls the form of 19th-century iron smelters that have been found in the park.
