This design took cues from historic Iberian and Asian courtyard dwellings, the dramatic landscape and environment of the Central Oregon high desert, and the simple agrarian structures of the area. It is a passively heated and cooled compound that hugs the surrounding wind-swept topography, acting as an ecological and experiential filter of views, passages, and microclimates from road to cliff and beyond.
This project was designed by Dave when he was a principal with Architecture Office, LLC in Portland, Oregon.
