Bend Residence Massing_01 - Living Room_0041.jpg


This ground-up custom residential project explores formal arrangements of space using geometry instead of walls to delineate space. By exploring the relationship between what is solid and what is a void, the design integrates a figural response to the distribution of solid/void relationships on-site.

Nestled at the foot of the Deschutes river on a 5-acre site, the single-level residence cantilevers out over a shallow ravine, garnering impressive views of the opposing rock rim wall. A material palette of lava stone, clear pine and an abundance of glazing reflects the material tone of the surrounding environment. The multi-generational residence consists of two mater bedrooms, two master bathrooms, a bunk room and an atelier.
