Porter's Ski and Sport

Tahoe City, California

The goal of this project was to enhance the street appearance of Porter's Ski and Sport Tahoe City Store.  The project coincided with the Tahoe City Beautification Project which brought sidewalks, landscaping, street lights and street furnishings to Tahoe City.  The addition of an entry gable element to the store front provides protection from the elements, a sign mounting structure and a rustic mountain image that was lacking in the original building.  This project received the TRPA's Best in the Basin Award for Commercial Modification in 2001.
