This modern mountain retreat was designed by Ryan Group Architects in collaboration with Sarah Jones Design, located in Martis Camp, Truckee, California. The clients are a Bay Area family with three young children who were looking for a getaway home to spend quality time as a family. The 5,200 square foot residence pairs vernacular materials such as cedar and stone with modern architectural details such as expansive picture windows that helps frame the breathtaking mountain views in the near distance. The entire layout of the floor plan has been organized to take advantage of the privileged views over the fairway and out toward Anderson Peak. The interior design of the home reflects warm modernism, a little coziness and comfort mixed with glass walls and streamlined surfaces. Furniture pieces were selected to establish harmony between old and new, not quintessential Tahoe, but they do reflect an earthy aesthetic that is very refreshing. The clients requested that the contemporary artwork displayed throughout the interiors take center stage. With this in mind, the furnishings were kept more neural without a lot of bold prints and colors, so as not to detract from the art pieces.
The finished result is a mountain retreat that creates a warm, contemporary statement that typifies new Tahoe style. It encompasses clean lines and simple, comfortable furnishings with collected mix of accessories and art. It is the true definition of warm modernism. Have a look through the home tour and let us know what you like or dislike about this mountain home.
