Ward-Young Architecture & Planning recently received the 2012 Commercial Project Award from the TRPA for the Cedar Glen Lodge in Tahoe Vista. This is the fifth year Ward-Young has won a Best in the Basin award. It recognizes projects demonstrating exceptional planning, design, and compatibility with the Lake Tahoe environment. The project Rebuild was designed by architects David Bourke and Don Fulda.
The Cedar Glen Lodge was originally built around 1950 with a beautiful rustic style. After much needed updates, Ward-Young took on the challenge to re-create the main lodge, which features casual fine dining, a guest lounge and the quaint wine bar, all overlooking spectacular views of Lake Tahoe. The renovations have created a warm, cozy mountain lodge environment that guests enjoy. The Cedar Glen Lodge is now a destination for locals and visitors alike.
TRPA’s project description noted, “This is an outstanding commercial project that renewed the Cedar Glen Lodge of Tahoe Vista.” The owner, Martha Bryan, stated “We have high expectations and this project exceeded them!”
The project was built by Robert Morken Construction, and planning consultation was provided by Kaufman Planning.
