Sierra College Tahoe-Truckee Campus

The Sierra Joint Community College District administration, faculty and community desired to build a new education center called the Tahoe Truckee Campus which was dedicated to sustainability. The vision for this project included complimenting the surrounding area by designing with the concept of “indoor living” and bringing the outside in. Careful consideration was taken to design the building to maximize both solar orientation and minimize site disturbance. As a true asset to the community Lionakis designed the first community college campus to earn LEED Gold Certification in California.
