A spectacular modern mountain style dwelling in Martis Camp

Contemporary Mountain Home-Ward Young Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

This modern mountain style home was designed by Ward-Young Architecture & Planning, located in the Martis Camp neighborhood of Truckee, California. The dwelling showcases expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, designed to maximize the surrounding mountain views and flood the home with natural light.

Additional highlights to the architectural design includes: massive lift-slide doors, and soaring curved rooflines. This helps to blur the boundaries between indoors and out, while capturing the picturesque views. Material elements integrated throughout the home entails: stone, steel, copper, cedar and mahogany for beauty, durability, and low-maintenance.

The home was designed to center around an open and spacious kitchen, featuring soaring ceilings and a modern yet warm feeling. The interior spaces also includes a getaway media/après ski room, a yoga loft, steam room, and a fabulous master bedroom suite.

Scottsdale-based IMI Design Studio was commissioned to focus on the interiors of the project. Combining luxury with eye-catching details and modern amenities, the team created a comfortable and relaxing mountain retreat. According to the architects, this project was the recipient of the “Merit Award” for the 2012 Tahoe Quarterly Magazine’s Mountain Home Awards.
