Each of the glass walls in this home on the north end of Lake Tahoe is five layers thick, held together by tiny stainless steel “spiders” hidden inside. The windows overlooking the lake and ski slopes are just the beginning: there is a glass elevator and a six-story glass stairwell that disappears into the walls, appearing to float. A 1,500-pound glass door — 7 feet by 9 feet— pivots 180 degrees on a titanium hinge. To add to the expansive feeling, the home is also designed with a curved ceiling.
The four-bedroom, four-bath home has 8,694 square feet.
