Mountain House

Designed by Japanese firm Atelier Bow-Wow, the Mountain House is a modern homage to the area's gold mining heritage. The home is situated on 60 acres at the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas on Sailor Flat, a 19th-century gold mine. The U.S. Forest Service surrounds the property on three sides and features ancient wagon roads and trails, creeks, and streams. The concrete structure is topped by a floating roof, creating an open-air retreat overlooking the tree tops. Inside, concrete floors are contrasted by warm timber ceilings throughout the living spaces, while wood-framed doors slide open to connect the interior to the landscape.
