Rustic-Modern Bridge House in Martis Camp Tahoe

Bridge House-01-1 Kindesign

Bridge House is a composition of four free-standing buildings connected by three glass bridges designed by ZAK Architects in collaboration with Jeffers Design Group. As the site slopes down, the shed roof slopes up framing the panoramic eastward view across Martis Valley, California to the Carson Range beyond, allowing ever changing skyscapes as the sunset reflects off the mountains. The 48 foot wide Great Room has glass doors that slide away to connect to an exterior deck of equal width, creating one unified indoor-outdoor living area set high within the trees. Materials were selected for their durability and appropriateness to the Sierra Nevada and the Lake Tahoe area.
