About Us

SANDBOX is an award-winning, comprehensive design firm based in Truckee, California, near Lake Tahoe, with projects in California, Nevada, Utah, Hawaii, Montana and Colorado. SANDBOX specializes in residential design, engineering, commercial improvements and interiors, with an affiliate graphic design company, SDBX. Founded on the belief that our clients will benefit from a multi-disciplinary approach, our team of highly-talented individuals with diverse backgrounds brings a blend of perspectives and skills that keeps our work original and timeless. While creating innovative design is a mantra at SANDBOX, serving our clients' needs is paramount. We strive to create spaces that enrich the lives of their owners — spaces that are aesthetically inspiring, highly functional, sensitive to the environment and finish on time and within budget. Together, these goals can only be achieved through thoughtful design, careful attention to detail and effective management of the process. Designing and building a custom home is an intensely personal and sometimes daunting process — one that requires great working-relationships between all parties involved. At SANDBOX, we are professional, yet down-to-earth people with a sense of humor. We educate our clients on options then take the time to listen to their feedback. We encourage client involvement throughout the design process. Our in-house engineering capabilities provide a distinct advantage when translating the design into cost-effective construction methods. Having completed numerous successful projects, we have developed close relationships with regional planning agencies, community design review committees, as well as many fine contractors and suppliers in the areas in which we work. All of this combines to make designing and building a project a smooth and fun process. Our proven ability to provide a high-quality, creative product with superior client service has gained SANDBOX significant recognition in the Lake Tahoe area and beyond.
