Not a single bolder was harmed during the construction of the Truckee Creek House. Located on a rocky plot in California, the home weaves its way around the natural landscape of the site. The exterior is clad in a mixture of concrete and steel, a palette that complements the surrounding rocks and evergreen forest. Similar materials are found throughout the interior where large panels of glazing highlight the existing boulders like fine art. Rock gardens and pebble terraces add to the native scenery while completing the zen-like atmosphere.
