Martis Camp

“For years I have had the image of a modern home floating in the pine trees of the mountains surrounded by falling snow.  Not a log cabin mind you but a home with classic contemporary lines, organic building materials and extensive glass.  This has been a bucket list goal of mine for a very long time.  The Martis Camp home is precisely the project I have visualized all these years.  What an incredible opportunity to push the envelope of modern design in a world class resort only 90 minutes from home in Truckee CA.  It is with great anticipation and excitement that I await its completion in the Summer of 2013.”

Sage architecture redefines mountain living with the flight house

california-based sage architecture crafted a midcentury modern mountain home in the martis camp development of truckee, california, unlike any you are likely to find in this environment. named the ‘flight house’ for its metaphorical escape from city life but also due to its layered airfoil roofs that hover over the living spaces beneath. on one end of the home, the great room is set firmly on the ground with an exposed concrete slab-on-grade floor that contains radiant heating and serves as thermal mass collecting natural heat from the sunlight. the shape of the roof is carefully designed so as to shade the interior during the summer but it’s curving form opens more surface area in the winter time for natural light and welcomed heat gain. as the topography slopes to a lower elevation, the structure gradually rises under a skyward-sloping canopy until ending in a suspended glass box providing more of a tree house experience amidst the surrounding foliage.
