The four-season Mountainside at Northstar community, located between The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and the Village at Northstar, features beautiful examples of eco-friendly mountain architecture. Stellar Townhomes, designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson are built to achieve LEED certification, feature energy-efficient lighting, and provide spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California.
The houses are modern interpretations of the mountain home. They are energy-efficient and designed to offer all the amenities of a luxury resort. Each unit features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and ski rooms for gear – all distributed across 2,100 square feet of space over two floors and organized along a central spine. The main floor’s great room includes an informal dining area integrated with the kitchen.
A wide palette of natural materials such as white oak dominate the interiors, with black-stained cedar siding, blackened steel panels, concrete, and glass used for the exterior. The simplicity of the design lends itself to maximum efficiency- with a goal to achieve LEED certification.
