Located in a dense forest of Jeffery pine and Douglas fir, occupants of these mountainside homes enjoy remarkable views across valleys and mountains 

Designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the Stellar Residences and Townhomes at Mountainside Northstar, in Truckee, California, USA, challenge the concept of the traditional mountain chalet. Familiar materials - warm wood, glass, and the exposed structure - are reorganized to provide a contemporary dwelling that makes a strong connection to the surrounding environment while also paying homage to the Lake Tahoe vernacular. 

Located in a dense forest of Jeffery pine and Douglas fir, occupants are drawn into an elevated world with remarkable views of the Martis Valley and Carson Range beyond. Large expanses of glass offer a visual and physical connection to the outdoors, bathing communal areas in soft northern light throughout the day and framing sunlit views of the Californian Sierra Nevada mountains in the evening. 

Celebrating outdoor-living with direct access to skiing, hiking, and biking, the houses emphasize healthy living and environmental stewardship, as demonstrated in the project's LEED for Homes certification design standards.

The WAN Awards Residential category is now open until 30th June.
