Blaze Makoid Architecture is the architect of this beautiful house called Martis Camp 457. Martin Camp itself is the golf club and multi-generational ski which is located between Lake Tahoe and California, the area of historic Truckee. The natural slope is used by the architect to make 5.923 square foot house. The result is a house with an abstractly shaped residence along the natural slope.

The concept idea of Martis Camp 457 is creating a low profile house. That’s why the architect has an awesome strategy for the architecture, especially with the roof. This roof is the primary form marker for the whole building. The public spaces are also designed facing the mountain and valley range.

The roof has been built with the black stained cedar siding and the black metal material. Those materials are the best material for a low profile house to blur the shape of the vertical and the horizontal surfaces of the house.

Living Room

A stone fireplace divided the interior space of the house, especially between the living room and the kitchen area. Martis Camp 457 has a large glass wall too around the living room. It shows how beautiful t the outdoor deck is.

The client of this house project bought one acre at the heavily wooded with the steeply sloping site. The minimal tree removal on the site makes the exterior still has its own natural view around the Carson Mountain Range.
