Mountain contemporary house with inside-out harmony in Tahoe

front-view-contemporary-exterior

This fabulous mountain contemporary house was designed by Zak Architecture in collaboration with Sarah Jones Interior Design, located in Tahoe, California. The dwelling features an exquisite composition of four free-standing buildings, inter-connected by three glass bridges. With a downwards sloping property, the architects devised the dwelling’s shed roof to slope upwards, capturing sweeping vistas of Martis Valley and beyond to the spectacular Carson Range. This allows for an ever-changing skyscape as the sunset reflects off the mountains.

Project Team: Architect: Zak Architecture / Interior Design: Sarah Jones Interior Design / Builder: Jim Morrison Construction

Encompassing 6,352 square feet of living space, this residence boasts five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms. The 48-foot wide Great Room features 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.

What We Love: This mountain contemporary house offers stunning views and light-filled interiors thanks to expansive walls of glass. The large great room is the centerpiece of this home design, showcasing decadent furnishings, fixtures and accessories. The heavy use of wood adds warmth to this otherwise contemporary interior floor plan. The layout of this home, connected by bridges, affords the luxury of privacy, with guests spaces and main living spaces separated from the owners private spaces… Readers, we would love to hear your thoughts on the overall design and layout of this home. Do you think it was a success? Tell us in the Comments!

Note: Have a look at another incredible home tour that we have featured here on One Kindesign from the portfolio of the architects of this project, Zak Architects: Exotic retreat with astonishing features on the Kona Coast.
