We recently had photos by Mike Dean taken of the The Sunset House, a home east of the University of Oregon. Some of the images are posted below.
A little about the project:
The house sits within a loop formed by a hilly street east of the University of Oregon. The commanding three story western face and its narrow width accentuates its vertical presence. Two rows of tall windows are set into the stucco exterior and allow glimpses of exposed timbers and brightly painted surfaces inside.
The site's sloping geography and narrow, trapezoid-like property line sparked the need for creative solutions. Windows cover the south-facing walls on each level and a high, atrium-like central space along with a central column rising from the main living floor to skylights acts as a light well for the whole interior.
