A R C H I T E CT U R E 315 BELOW: Located in downtown Bend, Oregon, the home is nestled among early 1900s mill worker housing. The roofline features three steps to break up the scale of the house, so it doesn't overpower its one-story neighbors. Its entry to the right is subtly accented with a low concrete wall in gentle homage to Frank Lloyd Wright's designs. FACING PAGE TOP: A see-through fireplace clad in aluminum panels becomes the focal point inside and out. Smaller rooms make for an intimate feel in context of the neighborhood, while providing ample room for the courtyard out back. Polished concrete floors with radiant heat ground the interior spaces. FACING PAGE BOTTOM: In contrast to the front of the house, which is rather solid, the back opens to the protected courtyard. Rough-sawn black stained cedar siding contrasts with the aluminum and cedar features on the exterior. Contractor: High Timber Construction. Photographs by Alan Brandt Photography "Quality of light and texture, and how they reinforce the character and the use of the space, are the most important elements of a design." –Eric Meglasson
