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.

    i’m not particularly impressed with this place at all. the curved roofs and exposed steel give the feeling that you are in an auditorium, not a house. then again, I gather that the owner is a musician, so maybe this design suits his tastes, that is, if you want your “getaway” to remind you of your “workplace”.

    for the emphasis that this article places on “massive lift-slide doors”, I only see 1 in the photos. whenever I see a house with a pivoting entry door, it makes me wonder whether thermal efficiency was much of a design criteria. maybe pivoting doors are ok in parts of Arizona, but it just doesn’t seem to me to be the way to go if the house is somewhere that where it gets cold during the winter.

      Looks like there are three “lift-slide doors” in the living room. Its sometimes hard to get a full perspective with the angles of the photographs.

        yes, I was counting levers. in the third photo, I saw a lift-slide lever on the right side. in the seventh photo I see that to the left of that lift-slide there is a second lift-slide whose lever was hidden in the third photo. the second lift-slide appears to open in the opposite direction to the first lift-slide. referring again to the third photo, I think that the third lift-slide is left of the fireplace but I can’t see a lever. it does appear that the third lift-slide must open in the same direction as the first lift-slide or I would have seen the lever for it in the seventh photo.
