Mountainside tapped BAR Architects, a San Francisco-based architectural firm to lead the design of the newest neighborhood BOULDERS. With a relaxed, sophisticated architectural design, BOULDERS blends iconic snow-country tradition with a distinctly modern mountain style. A simple palette of materials, including steel, glass and wood, complements the surrounding natural environment while bringing warmth to the inviting interiors.
“When we first saw the site, we were stunned by its beauty. The natural rock outcropping blends perfectly with a seemingly endless sea of trees,” said Jeff Goodwin, principal of BAR Architects. “The architecture is meant to showcase this landscape without upstaging it or the spectacular views of the Carson Range beyond. It is presented through a contemporary lens, something that is unique to Mountainside here in the Tahoe area. We conceptualized everything with the Boulders resident in mind, someone who is looking for understated, natural elegance and appreciates an adventurous spirit.”
While BOULDERS is a true enclave in every sense of the word, its place within the larger Mountainside community adds an experience-enhancing dimension to living here. It is purposefully created with the four-season, all-terrain, multi-sport enthusiast in mind. With immediate access to the area’s renowned summer and winter terrain, owners can take advantage of a 40-mile hiking and biking network of trails just outside the front door.
