Townhouses and villas in ski resort in the US
• Townhouses and villas in ski resort in the United States
Studio architects Bohlin Cywinski Jackson designed a complex of 6 villas and 11 townhouses on a ski resort in Lake Tahoe, United States surroundings.
In an effort to comply with the ideals of right living and the needs of modern technically advanced customers, the architects challenged the concept of a traditional mountain chalet. Although the construction materials used, which can often be found in conventional country cottages - warm wood, glass and natural stone - a set of elements has been upgraded to provide maximum contact with nature, while at the same time paying tribute to local building traditions.
The complex offers two types of objects - family houses and townhouses.
Once in the house from the upper floor, the residents are immediately immersed in a mountain landscape with a wonderful view of the valley and ridge Martis Carson Range. The large glazed area offers a close visual link with the landscape. The master bedroom is bathed in natural light thanks to three glass walls, as if hovering over the ski run, giving the impression that you are looking down from the treetops. Compact and efficient terraced houses stretched down the mountainside, following the curve of the ski slope. Engineering networks and keeping them organized along common walls to free up more space for beds, allowing for seasonal overflow houses. The buildings are well lit and have a close relationship with the natural environment.
