This is a house that was built to last, one that’s been designed to be a cozy family home for generations to come. It was created with great consideration in mind for versatility and flexibility. The project was a close collaboration between studios Walton Architecture + Engineering, Crestwood Construction and interior designer Denise Kuriger. It occupies a generously-sized piece of land in Truckee, a town in Nevada. The site has a gentle slope which the architects took advantage of by adding a lovely sunken sitting area just outside.
The house itself is quite big, with a large floor plan which has been divided and organized in such a way to allow different family members and guests the opportunity to enjoy different activities and to have some privacy at the same time. There are quite a few cozy window nooks throughout the house and several outdoor areas as well. The large floor-to-ceiling windows create a strong connection between the interior and the surroundings, allowing natural light to fill every single room. The entrance is marked by a wooden pivot door and reveals an open and airy social area with lots of comfortable seating, a big dining table and a stylish kitchen.
