The Sanctuary

This unique multi-use recreation project sits in a wooded residential community at the edge of beautiful Lake Wylie in North Carolina and is the first project to be LEED certified in Mecklenburg County.

The Sanctuary consists of a Lodge/Pavilion structure, junior Olympic swimming pool, six tennis courts, and outdoor amphitheater. Other site amenities include tennis shelters, picnic pavilion, Kayak shed, and numerous soft and hard surface walking trails. The main lodge is constructed primarily of heavy timber for posts and trusses with conventional stick framing.

Design elements throughout the project include exposed trusses and rafters, hand peeled timber columns and rails, and custom stile and rail wood doors creating an overall rustic theme.
