Situated on the south shore of Lake Tahoe, this property has belonged to the ownership trust for over 100 years. With respect to its history and world class locale, our client challenged us to “deliver the lake” – a deceivingly simple manifesto whose challenges proved delightfully complex. Our Modern Lodge concept delivers on the expectations associated with a traditional mountain lodge, with regard for tradition and locally established (and required) vernacular, while contemporary enough to satisfy today’s savvy, young jet-set crowd; a timeless place for the generations to enjoy for years to come. The signature Great Room honors the unparalleled view, epitomizing the concept with natural floors, soaring ceilings and chiseled columns. A hand-hewn relief carving lends a subtle yet spectacular backdrop to the monumental stair. Showcasing regional materials wherever possible – Tahoe granite and local pines - we even went so far as to salvage an old dock and trees from the site, repurposing them in art and display throughout the property. While the lodge takes inspiration from forested mountains, the Bistro with its panoramic view is distinctive in its celebration of the lake. Nautically inspired palette and details include a distinctive ceiling of hand-woven rope panels. Abandoning conformity, the guestrooms’ innovative floor plans are oriented to take full advantage of the view. Every room enjoys a two-sided fire feature visible from the entry, while sliding panels behind the headboard bring the outdoors all the way into bathroom and shower spaces as well. Consisting of 127 standard rooms and 22 suites, the scope included: a reception lobby, Great Room, mezzanine library, bar & lounge, Bistro, Adventure Center, Retail, Kids Camp, Ballrooms, Terraces, Pool Deck, Spa and Fitness. Achieving LEED Silver, this project strived to not only preserve the health of its pristine landscape, but to improve it.
