Contemporary Mountain Residence by John Maniscalco Architecture
This beautiful house in the mountains was designed by John Maniscalco Architecture, and it?s located close to the Sugar Bowl Ski Resort in Norden, California. While the first level of the house is made from cedar, the second level is glazed, so the most spectacular views of the surrounding forest are seen from there. In the interior decoration there are many wood breeds such as spruce and walnut, which give the interior of the house warm pleasant feeling that is so necessary to lodge in the mountains. From architects'? description: ?Perched on a concrete plinth that lifts the house above the tall winter snow-pack, a solid, cedar-clad volume houses sleeping areas, boot room, and service spaces. Above, a variety of living spaces, each enjoying mountain views, are gathered under a simple, bent planar roof form. The exaggerated geometry of the openings frame views of horizontal snow drifts and vertical stands of pine trees?.
