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 –
Designed by Pluspuu Oy it is modern logs without the traditional corners that shape the exterior of this exclusive getaway. Dark dashing and surrounded by greenery the façade of the summer house is both unique and elegant.
The stone wall offers much more than support to the cantilevered structure as it divides the home into social and private spaces even as concrete pillars offer further support. With an elevated design the house gives those inside a smart view of the river from almost every level inside.
It is one thing to turn a forgotten old home into a cheerful and comfortable setting suited to the needs of a modern family. But the task becomes much more challenging when you need to convert a mid-century bungalow into a trio of modest dwellings along with a cool solarium at the heart of it all.
The double ventilated wooden façade further improves the insulation of this modest home where it is wood that holds sway on the inside. Charming public spaces and cozy bedrooms complete an efficient and adaptable residence that is not too hard on the purse strings of the homeowner.
