Boora Architects have designed a modern residence, located on the bay side of a peninsula on the Oregon Coast, USA. The project has a total area of 2,865 square feet and was developed in a “U”-shape, around a central courtyard. Its design captures the surrounding views and was associated by the architects with a glowing lantern in the marshland, during night time. Here is more information on the structure of the residence from the official project description: “The upper floor in the largest of the two buildings is extensively glass-walled. Windows crescendo from 8 to 15-feet tall at the most outward facing point. A large covered deck extends the indoor footprint by nearly an additional 1/3, joining the massing of the residence, framing an outdoor invisible wall. The lower level is more private, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a flex room–a space that converts open living area into a guest bedroom by pulling two eight-foot sliding hemlock accordion pocket panels to form walls“. This sculptural residence defined by wood and stone was especially developed as a week-end getaway- find it welcoming? [Photographer: Jon Jensen]
