stremmel house

Architectural Record’s “House of the Year” and ranked by Architectural Digest’s AD 100 as one of the world’s great buildings, the Stremmel House is Nevada’s premier contemporary work of art. It is perched 1,000 feet above Reno, Nevada on a sage and wildflower-covered peak rising up against the eastern wall of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Facing east, one is far above the city’s flickering evening lights, and eye level with airplanes as they approach Reno-Tahoe International Airport in the distance. As the Anitra Drive gate opens, residents and visitors wind gently uphill past homes designed by Will Bruder, Ricardo Legorreta and others. The Stremmel House invites a clear 360 degree view of the Great Basin valley floor, surrounding mountains and sky.

Contemporary architecture speaks to our life and times.  Dynamic, exhilarating spaces to work and live in not only cause the spirit to soar, but they help us live a fuller human life.

Welcome to Reno, where the High Sierra meets the Great Basin.

Etch these two things into your memory.

One. There are four distinct seasons to be experienced in this beautiful region. Within 90 minutes of your doorstep are 17 alpine and Nordic ski resorts, 45 golf courses, a myriad of lakes, rivers, and far more hiking and biking trails than one could ever count. But let’s say you prefer a telephoto lens to a fishing line. To the west, the Sierra mountains beckon  you to Lake Tahoe, home of some of the world’s bluest waters, most beautiful peaks and FannyBridge, the spot where the Lake begins emptying snow runoff into the Truckee.

Meandering down the mountain, the clear, cold Truckee runs through Reno and ends in the stark desert beauty of Pyramid Lake, home to American white pelicans and Lahontan cutthroat trout, about 10 minutes to the northeast. To the south, are low lying hills through which the new I-580 winds its way to Carson City, Nevada’s picturesque capital, South Lake Tahoe, and on down the eastern edge of the Sierra to Yosemite, Mammoth and southern California.  To the north, Peavine Mountain anchors rolling hills and stunning sunsets in the distance. Across the valley, beyond the cities of Reno and Sparks, the Virginia Range stretches south to north, where the Truckee River cuts through. The sun and moon rise from out there, also at eye level.
Two. It is a small world. The airport, university, downtown, and virtually all local destinations are within 20 minutes of your door. There are two major medical centers, including the premier children’s center between Salt Lake City and San Francisco. Lake Tahoe is 25 to 45 minutes away, depending on whether you’re visiting the north or south shore. Every western city is a short plane ride away.

Reno is moving at light speed to become one of America’s most dynamic entrepreneurial and start-up tech cities, as evidenced by companies like Microsoft Licensing, Apple, Tesla and Switch SuperNAP who now call The Biggest Little City in the World home. Reno’s recent business success has been reported in major newspapers around the country and in media outlets such as Entrepreneur and Bloomberg. Nevada has no personal or corporate income tax. Nor does the state impose estate tax, gift tax or franchise tax. 

Nevada has the lowest state income tax burden in the nation and ranks third nationally for business climate, including income, sales and property taxes, and unemployment insurance taxes. The state also boasts a history of favorable laws for trust situs purposes.

Nevada Museum of Art

The Nevada Museum of Art, Reno Chamber Orchestra and Reno Philharmonic Orchestra lead the way culturally in Reno, but dozens of music, theater, dance, visual art and literary organizations, and Burning Man, just 110 miles north, create both incredible variety and depth. And on a sprawling hill just north of downtown, the University of Nevada, one of America’s top teaching and research universities, sits, as do the National Judicial College, the Desert Research Institute and the Nevada home of the Davidson Institute.

  • “In a sense, this house is the culmination of ideas I have nursed through in other houses.
    Here you can just see them clearly.”

    Mark Mack, ArchitectSan Francisco Examiner Magazine, May '97
  • “We all had in mind a minimal furniture statement.
    The owners wanted an uncluttered interior that respected the architecture without being completely deferential.”

    Terry Hunziker, ADArchitectural Digest, December '95
  • “In most houses, you tend to gravitate to one or two rooms after a while.
    But we use every bit of this house.”

    Peter StremmelArchitectural Record, April '96
  • “Although large at 7,000 square feet, the house makes as little a mark as possible on the nine acres of fragile desert that surround it.”

    Susan Doubilet and Daralice BolesAmerican House Now, '97
  • “…we learned exactly how the sun would come in at every time of day, and in every season.
    It really helped us to see where walls and windows would be placed most effectively.”
