Description: In an attempt to reverse the curse of the ubiquitous “snout house” (i.e. two car garage with a house behind it), the Saltern Residence addresses environmental and programmatic factors while still comfortably residing in a northwest Reno, Nevada suburb. Hopefully re-introducing the home’s living area to the street and the community, enhancing the “front porch” concept rather than hiding it behind the garage, thus, the Saltern Residence shifts the garage back and the living room forward. Public and private programmatic zoning is achieved through a split level design.

----------------------------

Dubbed the "Iinverted Economic Suburan Sombrero" the curved roofs are economically achieved through use of standard trusses shifted to facilitate the split levels and natural light clerestory. Simple loops of glu-lam beams span from tower to tower supporting the exposed roof trusses. By re-introducing the home's living area to the street it was hoped to enhance the 'front port' concept. Public and private programmatic zoning is acchieved through a split level design.
