PORTFOLIO

Truckee-Phoenix Executive Building

Awarded LEED Silver CS in November 2009, being the first LEED certified commercial office building in Truckee.

There are a few remaining tenant spaces available for lease. Please contact North Tahoe Commercial for leasing information.

The objective was to create a speculative professional office project that would provide a rewarding daily work environment for local professionals. Respecting the pattern of corner offices being a symbol of power and success in the traditional business world, the architect studied how to maximize the quantity of corner offices. The resultant design includes opportunities for 36 corner offices in the 20,000 sq. ft. building.

The building embraces regional identity in a timeless manner and is a flagship within the existing business park.

The third level conference room was designed to be a one-of-a-kind experience. It is a three sided glass room with panoramic views of the mountainscape to the south, east and west. The design has a stacked repetitive theme that talks to the organic layering of the distant mountains while offering an ease of simplicity to the eyes and offering the financial rewards found in repetitive modular type design.

Dr. & Mrs. R. Scott Foster
It has been our pleasure over the lost nine years to have an ongoing working relationship with Kurt Reinkens. He was extremely helpful in the process of subdividing and developing our property in Trucker. His skill as an architect and his commitment to creating a symbiotic relationship between the environment and his architecture are well known. His real mastery becomes apparent in designing the structure to optimize the surrounding landscape.

He continues to serve as advisor for architectural review in the development of further home sites in our sub-division. We would highly recommend him both personally and professionally.
