To create this unique partially covered outdoor dining space, architect David Bourke separated the home's two gabled spaces by a foyer. Slate tile flows from the foyer into this outdoor space.

Wicker-style, durable chairs cozy up to a tempered glass-topped table with a sturdy solid aluminum frame.

The home's center section, capped with a flat roof, draws attention to its two gabled wings. The outdoor dining area is easily accessible via sliding doors in the living room and foyer.

A double-sided fireplace lends warmth and ambience in both the master bedroom and patio, where a chimney, wrapped in matte hot-rolled steel and surrounded by site-sourced boulders, becomes a captivating focal point.

The outdoor kitchen's artwork consists of sculptures and wall hangings fashioned from found objects. A natural wreath of woven branches draws the eye to the patio's far wall.

Site-sourced granite stones and boulders create a bed for bristlecone pine driftwood, discovered along a local lakeshore by landscape designer Lebo Newman.

A mix of textures lend visual interest in the outdoor dining area, where veneered fieldstone, wood, steel, stucco and slate tell a modern mountain design story.

All windows and doors are framed in black to complement the dark, lacquered finish of steel beams and cladding.

The gas fireplace warms the patio area during evening hours, when temperatures can drop as low as 50 degrees F during summer months. A mesh curtain over the fireplace stands in as a modern take on a traditional fireplace screen.

Designed to take advantage of the forest, golf course and mountain views beyond, this outdoor kitchen and dining space provides a central, stylish spot to enjoy the natural beauty of Truckee Tahoe.
