In order for the existing ski lodge to have a different use it must be programmed. This is where the corporate retreat center comes to play. In this environment people will act differently than if they were in the office. The environment in which we live, work, or play has an affect on us. To create a space where interaction occurs between people it must be architecturally designed. The objective is to provide people with a place for learning about themselves and others in a memorable environment. The retreat center will be dedicated to teamwork. It will be away from the city and yet not too far for a day- team outing. The retreat center will be the place where corporate business men/women can take off their suits and jackets. The natural and existing context is the main focus of the design. The site is located between Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska off Interstate 80. It consists of bluffs, formations between hills and mountains, that have extensive wooded areas. The site also has an old ski lodge that is mystical in that it is hidden in the forest of the bluffs.
