Sunset Idea House

This Green Idea house is nestled in the sagebrush and pines of Gray's Crossing development in Truckee, California. The landscape design celebrates the history of the area with a custom water runnel resembling an old log flume laid out as a metal sculpture. This water feature and the irrigation are fed by collected snowmelt. Coal-colored recycled glass is added to the concrete patios and stairs, reminiscent of the coal originally mined in the area. Rammed earth walls make up the landscape perimeter as well as an outdoor sofa in the rear of the house.
