The Lodges on Vashon

Champion modular construction provides a relaxing island getaway for travelers

The Lodges on Vashon project is unique not only for its location on Vashon Island, but for the architectural features incorporated into the design. The layout of the 17 modular units and common areas make the most of the project site while maintaining the natural elements of the Vashon Island experience.

The architect utilized a mixture of contemporary and nature elements, ranging from metal roofs and siding, to cement lap siding, to real cedar planks installed at various locations.

The Lodges were designed to allow residents to directly react with the island nature through the provision of fully glazed shower doors at certain lodging units and landscape designed to serve this purpose while maintaining privacy.

Project Scope

  • 17 modular units (8,643 sq. ft.)


With eight meadow lodge units, eight courtyard lodge units, and one public house building produced at a modular factory in Idaho, the challenge existed of getting both materials and a workforce onto the island.


Each of the 17 units were successfully delivered to the island using a ferry. The off-site build approach greatly reduced the need for multiple crews on the island which provided greater savings to the client by minimizing the costs and time associated with shipping materials and labor travel.
