This three storied house (two levels above ground, one below ground) is located up a long tree lined driveway on a stunning site with views out across Karaka Bay to Browns Island right around to Music Point. The plan focuses around the pivotal central space that welcomes visitors and extends the lounge space for large gatherings, and also connects the different parts of the house together horizontally and vertically. A curved wall of fine vertical cedar battens rises up through the space from the basement level and defines one edge of the atrium.
Skyline Residence, Portland, OR by Skylab Architecture
American firm skylab architecture has recently completed the ‘skyline residence,’ a 3,300 square-foot home on a steep site overlooking
the willamette valley and oregon coast range. Sitting on a poured-in-place concrete plinth, two black masses rest on top of each other,
perpendicular to one another with full height glazing oriented west towards the natural landscape.
The private spaces are located in the
upper level within a timber frame construction, while a steel assembly supports the core of the house on the first level where the
maple-floored kitchen is the focal point of the public functions. stormwater is channeled to the planters before returning to the grid,
reducing the cost of irrigation.
