In the desert mountain landscape of Reno, two art collectors requested a house that embodies contemporary art and is of the American West. The architects treated the ground as a fluid material with the house emerging as a multifaceted building with flowing spaces. Views out towards the landscape become part of this form, framing the desert garden and mountains beyond. Loisos + Ubbelohde provided consulting on sustainable strategies, including shading, construction assemblies, glazing, and daylighting,and lighting.
