Architect Honored For Work Down Under

Courtesy photo Architect Jim McLaughlin, of Ketchum-based McLaughlin & Associates Architects, was honored in late 2009 by the readers of Conde Nast Traveller UK. In the magazine’s Readers’ Travel Awards 2009, readers ranked the Blanket Bay Lodge, above, on the South Island of New Zealand, as the best leisure hotel in Australasia and the South Pacific. In designing and overseeing construction of the lodge, McLaughlin and members of his firm made nearly 20 trips to New Zealand from the Wood River Valley. The intimate, 12-unit lodge opened in December 1999.
