Lodge at Torrey Pines / Located near Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve just north of La Jolla, the luxury lodge's setting was designed to reflect the area’s native Torrey pines and sandstone formations. Capitalizing on the site’s natural beauty, the landscape for this 175-room, 5 Diamond Award resort successfully marries dramatic vistas and jewel-like nooks. JLJA's design imperative was to showcase drought-tolerant and regionally-adapted plants, preserve existing Torrey pines, and incorporate simple and understated materials that complemented Craftsman ideals. The two central landscaped spaces are the Torrey Court, featuring paths winding through native plants, pines, and bluffs, and the Grand Terrace, an Edwardian terrace and lawn surrounded by gardens and perfect for impromptu croquet matches. Collaborating with the design team, JLJA worked to ensure private and intimate spaces for lodge guests, while also providing platforms for major events, notably the annual Concours d'Elegance and PGA Tournament.
