Nested against a dramatic sloping piece of land, the Ski Lodge opens up to the amazing views of the Alpine Meadows, nearby Lake Tahoe, California. The project was commissioned by a family looking for a holiday home in which to enjoy the amazing winter and summer activities this area has to offer.
The project develops around a series of spine walls that cross the site sliding between each other, adapting to the challenging topography. The living spaces and main rooms open up to the spectacular sights thanks to the carefully designed roof planes. The elegant combination of materials along with a thoughtful site integration helps to camouflage the building in the alpine environment it sits in.
