When Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects took to creating this stunning timber wood Home in Glenbrook, Nevada, it was “wooded” bliss from the start. Located on the eastern edge of Lake Tahoe, this timber home is even surrounded by tall pine and fir trees. At the foot of a wooded hill rising in the background, the main house and guest house sit on a tree-sheltered courtyard, peacefully protected and private in its natural setting. This country home facade boasts log columns, cedar shingles and a zinc roof, which the architects explain, help the home blend with its surrounding landscape. The forest house was designed as a social spot for gathering family and friends, and its interiors reflect that communal atmosphere. An open concept family room is a grand two-storey space, finished in wood from floor to ceiling. Large windows offer endless views of the outdoors. Stylish and sustainable materials include reclaimed oak floors and recycled-glass countertops in the kitchen. Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects.
