Reinventing the classic mountain chalet design with modernity energy-efficiency and the unique charm of Lake Tahoe are for those who love comfort fun-filled ski slopes and amazing views rolled into one. A series of six single-family residences and eleven townhouses designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson these mountainside escapes allow homeowners to move away from mundane city life even while wrapping them in modernity and a tech-savvy lifestyle. This is essentially a flawless marriage of two contrasting worlds –
The double height living area along with kitchen and dining on the lower level has a slanted ceiling even as the bedrooms and private spaces snugly sit on the top floor. White is the color of choice here as the neutral color palette is only broken up the artwork on the walls and warm wooden surfaces.
But this Californian home is about a lot more than just creating a fun and fabulous social setting. Smart technologies like the green roof photovoltaic panels that also offer shade for the lower level heat reduction and energy-saving features transform it into a sustainable and eco-friendly hub. The 12KW solar panels can power the home completely even as automatic sensors cut down on waste of electricity even further. A smart home for the evolving urban family!
