Location: Sheboygan, Wisconsin
Status: Completed 2022
Size: 25 Rooms
The Watershed Hotel in Sheboygan was constructed north of a previous townhome development we had previously designed in 2018. The site was a former lumber yard which had remained undeveloped for many years due to the poor underlying soils. The hotel utilized the same shallow mat concrete footing and geofoam strategy that we pioneered on the adjacent townhomes.
Design inspiration for the hotel came from the river as well as the lumber heritage of the site. Finishes throughout the hotel evoke blue flowing water. The hotel interior also features the raw, exposed, 2x wood framing and plywood of the roof structure as a nod to the former use of the site as a lumber yard. The rich warmth of the wood provides a nice counterpoint to the polished concrete floors.
The rooms feature large expansive windows that open out to the Sheboygan River. Along the river face of the building, the rooms offer small balconies or at grade patios to sit and enjoy the scenery during the warmer summer months.
