PORTFOLIO

Nevada City-01

The owner purchased the home for its location and views, which he wanted to capture as much of as possible. The owner of this home hosts a variety of parties from cocktail parties to visiting musician performing for a small group. The existing home was dated and worn with the original 1979 finishes and needed an update, from the poor artificial lighting and the brick veneer at the kitchen island, to the scalloped roof shingles and monotone siding. The remodeled home has a contemporary feel and offers plenty of space to display the owner’s extensive art collection without competing for attention. With the adjustment of a few door locations and a kitchen layout the home was transformed from a space with good flow to an entertainer’s dream.

I have worked with MWA Architects on a number of projects over the years both as a member of the consultant team and as the Developer. My experience working with them in both capacities has provided me a comprehensive perspective of their outstanding knowledge, capabilities and service. MWA has extensive project experience in the local environment working with the applicable jurisdictions. In addition they utilize other highly qualified professionals in assembling their project teams. While these attributes clearly provide their clients an excellent value MWA also prides themselves on producing quality projects. MWA Architects have continually demonstrated exceptional ability in navigating projects successfully though all the planning, design, approvals and construction processes. Retaining MWA as the prime consultant for pursuing a development project in the Truckee region is unquestionably a positive choice.
