When the Kirschenbaums first commissioned SANDBOX to design a new home to replace their aging cabin on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, their directive was to create something that would be cozy, timeless and eco-conscious. The resulting home is just that! At 2,700 square feet, the residence is large enough for guests and extended family, yet is very cozy with intimately proportioned interior spaces. On the exterior, the home has a timeless, rustic quality, using indigenous Tahoe materials such as stone and wood, and nestles quietly into the forested homesite, preserving several 200+ year old trees – some over five feet in diameter! Reclaimed materials and many ‘green building’ practices were implemented in the design and construction of the home. View of partial Front Elevation (above), tucked in the trees. Photo by Vance Fox.
