Yellow Jacket Residence

Lake Tahoe

Nearing construction completion, the design concept of this mountain lakeside home is a contemporary rustic character. The client desired a design that would be compatible with its neighborhood setting of mostly traditional homes

The architectural design utilizes a traditional gable roof supported by timber trusses with large overhangs. Modern and durable exterior finish materials were selected including natural tree trunk columns, blackened steel railings and Ironwood handrails. Site drainage swales with a Japanese influenced rock pattern control drainage at the base of the house.

The interior pulls influences from the exterior palate with grey-stained rift, sawn white oak doors and cabinets, light grey wide plank oak floors, blackened steel hearth and trim details and the split face grey limestone carried across the expansive fireplace surround.

“Other architects say, ‘I’m the expert.’ de Reus is more collaborative. They made us feel as if our input really mattered, they listened, and they made the design process extremely fun.”
