In the most recent issue of Tahoe Quarterly, winners of the 2021 Mountain Home Awards were announced – and we are thrilled to share that we won the Ski Retreat Award for the Traverse Home!

The magazine highlights 30 unique and beautiful mountain escapes, featuring the best design, sustainable building, and outdoor oases across the Tahoe region. The story highlights The Palisades buildings’ modular design, luxurious aesthetic, and modern warmth. “This community of high-end townhomes and single-family residences takes inspiration from the luxurious mountain-modern designs of the region and distills them into a modern home that is built in under two months of onsite construction time. Owners sacrifice nothing in quality, yet all-in costs are lower than conventionally built homes of similar styles and amenities.”

Also highlighted in the article was the cost-effective and eco-conscious modular construction done at Plant Prefab, the quick build time, and minimal construction debris left at the job sites. The article also spoke with designers and architects at The Brown Studio, who shared thoughts on the journey from vision to completion. “There was a big focus on bringing a sense of warmth into the homes,” says interior designer Rory Brown. “We wanted the homes to feel fresh and clean in the summers and still have a sense of warmth in the winter. The easy proximity to the natural beauty of Tahoe made us want to bring that sense of nature inside, which we did by blending the modern look with a neutral warm palette and lots of natural finishes to create a mountain-modern aesthetic.”

We are so proud of all the people who have made The Palisades at Squaw a dream come true for our homeowners.
