Benvenuto House .
Architect: Faulkner Architects
Location: Truckee, CA
Description: The south-facing site sits at the edge of an evergreen forest where it meets a spring-fed creek at the base of an ancient volcano, now a mountain used for skiing. Years of flooding have exposed volcanic boulders that cover the site, and the house is located in this boulder field as three bars of building mass, staggered along a 140ft concrete wall, which parallels the natural geography of the site.
