This modern mountain home on Lake Tahoe combines modern design with the look and feel of a traditional cabin. A simple streamlined look allows the homeowner to enjoy their space without it distracting from what's outside.
This beautiful modern home in the hills is a nature lover's dream come true! For it, the architect used two sizes of Western red cedar screening to vent the facade and create a horizontal pattern. Trees and plants become one with the building, and the large windows welcome the outdoors in to create an even more serene environment.
Modern Cedar and Concrete Hillside Home With Cascading Roof Sections
The house emerges from the land, paralleling the slope of the butte with progressively stepping, flat, grassy rooflines. While the site inspired the residence’s composition and massing, the exposed concrete, cedar and steel materials speak to its “built” nature—original and honest, rather than imitative of the natural world. A butterfly roof caps the topmost level providing visual interest to the “cascading box” design while referencing the uplift of nearby mountain ranges.

The roof of the home swoops up and out from the exterior with walls of glass intimately connecting the rooms to the beautiful surroundings. Plants peek up from in between the steps, another fun way to tie the home to nature.
