The Timber Cove Resort, a redwood and glass lodge built atop the bluffs west of Highway 1 in 1960, was fully remodeled and reopened in 2016. The first phase of the Roche+Roche designed landscape included the outdoor living room with hanging swing seating, custom built-in banquettes, infrared soffit heaters, outdoor billiards and table tennis, and custom moveable planters on the event deck. The circular banquette seating creates an outdoor room focused on the custom steel fire-sphere whose dove cutouts echo the tile mosaic design on the nearby 93’ tall ‘Madonna of Peace’ sculpture by the late sculptor Beniamino Bufano.
Future phases include an accessible redesign of the main entry to reception, remodeling of the outdoor dining terrace facing the Pacific, and replacement of escaped exotic plant material with native coastal meadow plantings.
