Williams Residence in Lake Oswego, Oregon by Robert Oshatz Architect

Friday, August 11th, 2017

Article source: Robert Oshatz Architect 

When the original house was built in 1972, it was isolated in the woods. The Williams bought the house in the 1980s. They fell in love with the property but were never able to feel the same way about the exterior of the house. Over the years the area developed into a neighborhood of traditional houses; a style they did not appreciate.

Glass Farmhouse in Oregon by Olson Kundig

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Surrounded by wheat fields on a high-altitude plateau stand a small glass house and a solid, traditional barn. The owners, inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House, wanted a refuge that opens up to the prairie and mountains. The structures are conveniently close to each other and enjoy a sense of isolation at the end of a long country road. The roof of the wood-frame barn, which houses farm equipment below and guest rooms above, was inspired by the local vernacular and is echoed in the shed roof of the glass house.

West Hills Residence in Portland, Oregon by FIELDWORK Design & Architecture

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: FIELDWORK Design & Architecture

Located in the West Hills above downtown Portland, the project consisted of renovating an existing indoor swimming pool room and transforming an unfinished basement utility and storage area into a wine cellar and changing room. The primary inspiration was the environment in which the project is sited- immersed in the forest, with framed views of Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens. The goals were threefold: to remodel the lower level of the house into an environment that was timeless and consistent with the original character of the mid-century modern residence, to create a seamless connection to the outdoors, and to create a peaceful and therapeutic atmosphere for the clients and their family and friends to enjoy.

St. Charles Bend Cancer Center in Bend, Oregon by ZGF Architects LLP

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Article source: ZGF Architects LLP

Designed as a user-centric and regionally-focused facility, the new St. Charles Bend Cancer Center is a true testament to patient-centered design. It manifests the completion of a long-cherished vision to consolidate key radiation and oncology services in one location and an opportunity to design a facility, through Lean tools and methods, that enhance caregiver productivity and increases patient satisfaction. The building’s design also draws upon Central Oregon’s inspiring landscape of dessert and mountain vistas, which has also lured some of the nation’s best oncology specialists, making Bend an oasis of hope and health. The design goal was to create a relaxing and peaceful healing environment and to bring a spa-like space to the clinical setting. The designers used a soothing color palette, warm wood tones and carefully selected artwork and photography from local artist that depict the natural scenery of Bend and its beautiful surrounding landscape. Open, bright spaces, sweeping views and a meticulously programmed interior combine to create a world-class cancer center and a true place of healing for the body and soul. An outdoor deck off the infusion room cantilevers over the healing garden, giving staff and patients a sunny porch on which to relax. When weather permits, patients also have the option of receiving treatment in an outdoor infusion garden, where moods can be elevated by sunshine, mountain air, whimsical sculpture and the distant mountain views.

Red House in Portland, Oregon by Waechter Architecture

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Article source: Waechter Architecture

Construction has completed on Red House, a 1910 farmhouse that went bold.

Construction has completed on Red House. Award-winning Waechter Architecture was given the challenge of breathing new life into an existing 1910 farmhouse-style building located in an urban SE Portland neighborhood. A balance between new and old was desired; memory of the original balanced with freshness and vitality of the new. The solution was to maintain the original form of the house but abstract it into a modern sculpture.
