Elk Rock Road Residence
Lake Oswego, Oregon
Designed: 1988
Completed: 1989

Appearing to soar right out of the hillside, this house clings to a 30-degree slope rising above the Williamette River providing a spectacular view of the river, Mt. Hood and the rising sun. The house is an experiment in feelings. Although providing a secure feeling of being anchored into the site, the structure achieves a feeling of floating in space, like a bird in flight. The structure is funnel-like in shape: starting out with a small studio on the lowest level, moving to the children's bedrooms on the middle level, and on the upper level where the view is the best, family community spaces and master bedroom suite.
