About Casa Roca
Casa Roca: Harmonizing with Yosemite’s Landscape
Located in Yosemite Lakes, Casa Roca stands as a beacon of design that celebrates its stunning natural surroundings. The designers aimed for maximum visual transparency to capitalize on the breathtaking national park views.
Design with Nature in Mind
Strategic openings orient the living spaces toward the landscape’s beauty, marrying natural light with nature’s embrace. At the heart of Casa Roca, an outdoor area provides a serene retreat. Furthermore, the house’s roofline mirrors the mountain’s slope, enhancing its organic presence.
A Dialogue of Materials and Environment
Casa Roca’s material palette—dark-toned wood outside, warm wood inside—speaks to the environment. Stone and concrete also feature prominently, with bare covered floors enhancing the natural feel. The inclusion of three large rocks forges a bond with the surrounding terrain, ensuring the house is one with the landscape.
In essence, Casa Roca was crafted to make its residents feel at one with Yosemite Lakes’ mountainous essence, integrating the natural world into every aspect of its design.
