Lake Tahoe Residence
Gold Nugget Awards
Winner Best Custom Home (4500 sq ft and over)
“LCA Architects has done a wonderful job of creating a very large home that has human scale, that has materials that fit in well with the site and that would be comfortable to live in or visit…” “This home did the best job of incorporating itself into the environment and bringing the outside indoors.” – Judges Comments
A gallery spine in the front houses the owner’s art collection. The rooms were designed in the round to provide wide-angle views of the lake. The solar-heated indoor pool has a retractable roof to accommodate the beauty of Tahoe year round. To make this estate comfortable in a natural environment, without the wood cabin design, the first story exterior is Sierra Granite, the second story is cedar painted gray. The roof is blue slate, the floors are granite and marble, and various exotic woods are used for the interior trim.
