Whistler Chalet Foregoes Cabin Aesthetic For Sleek Lines

New, 1 comment


We've seen a lot of contemporary mountain architecture near north Lake Tahoe recently, but plenty of ski homes are still stuck in antlers, gigantic fireplaces, and the ubiquitous Navajo print. This Whistler abode bucks that trend, favoring sleek lines, a sloping roofline, and angular outdoor areas. BattersbyHowat Architects Inc. designed the home for a London ski lover looking to avoid the cookie cutter mountain aesthetic. Outside, minimalist standing seam metal roofing and black stained shingles frame the one thing that all good mountain houses have in common: lots of windows. Inside, finished red cedar, douglas fir beams, and lots of glazed glass intertwine to provide a home that is simple yet warm. We're diggin' this new mountain aesthetic, but tell us Curbediverse, what do you think?
