Truckee, California

This home sits along the edge of a meadow at the foot of Lookout Mountain.  The form of the home has been angled to capture the morning sun, align with the view of Lookout Mountain and shelter the inhabitants from views of neighboring homes.  The heavy timber framing and stone fireplace contrast with the lightness and transparency of the glazed wall fronting the meadow.  Numerous french doors open onto the protected stone terrace creating a subtle transition from interior to exterior.
