Central Oregon is known for its access to a variety of outdoor sports. The region’s variety of climates provides a unique opportunity to access different activity types in the same season. It is not uncommon for a person to go skiing in the morning and biking in the afternoon. A building in this region should reflect this lifestyle and provide a variety of ways to access the outdoors on daily and annual cycles. The High Desert Pavilion focuses on engagement.

Kenneally Residence in Oregon by PIQUE llc

Article source: PIQUE llc

Lot 108 has a prominent location in the Tetherow golf development featuring spectacular views of and from the golf course as well as desirable views of the distant landscape. These features combined with our client’s demands for a variety of living spaces with varied degrees of privacy, formal and informal concerns and clear distinctions between workplace and play space armed the project with a long list of things the building needs to achieve. Through in-depth site and program analysis, we were able to manage and prioritize these factors and create a building design that is intensely specific to its site and its occupants as well as sensitive to the environment.

This residence sits on a remote 10 acre site comprised of Sage & Juniper trees in Central Oregon. Conceived as two simple cubes in the landscape, one box for sleeping and one for living, the structure offers two distinct means of interaction with the landscape. The larger sleeping box is low & burrowed into earth, while the living box floats above, hovering just at treetop level. East & South orientations are exploited for views as well as passive solar orientation of the home.
