Spring 2017

Studio 3.2

Our studio assignment this semester was to develop a hostel in Lake Tahoe for skiers/snowboarders. The challenge of a sloped condition was a far cry from our standard flat plane of New Orleans. Furthermore, there had to be a consideration of extreme weather, heating, and accessibility.

The resulting form of my building was a stepped and slanted condition that moved down the mountain as a ramp. Wings of hostel rooms for either 4 or 8 people stem from the lobby/great room and step down to the actual lodge and equipment area at the base.
