Truckee - New Residence
Located on an infill lot in an established subdivision, this residence takes full advantage of all the parcel has to offer. The placement of the house takes advantage of view corridors and open space out back, and the room and window layouts help the neighboring houses disappear. The owner wanted a layout that would create an open feel and good communication between the upper and lower levels. This feel was accomplished with a full-height entry and an open loft over the living room. Equally important was creating a house that was architecturally interesting with a dynamic layout, yet economical to build.
