  • There’s no doubt this home is ravishing in its simplicity and the architect knew how to make the most of views, space and functionality: “Away from the water the view is framed and edited by a simple porch. The porch roof has been opened to create space from nature, a single Japanese maple which is inserted as a foil to the simple black stained cedar cladding of the house. The garage volume is differentiated from the house by a cladding of grey cement board. To the river, the simple cantilevered form of the deck is surrounded by frameless glass. The porch and deck, occurring opposite each other, stretch the space of the living room out into an experience of the landscape and provide varied options for sun, shade, shelter, and view.” One last thing you might want to know about this unique modern family home is that it was designed within a modest budget. The attention to details alongside a remarkable mix of natural and industrial materials create a soothing effect. Bamboo stair treads complement polished concrete floors on the lower level while bamboo flooring and cabinetry flood the master suite with warmth. Completely vibrating on the same wavelength as the outdoors, private spaces were visually entangled with the raw, inviting riverside landscape outdoors

Another element of interest is the three-sided stone fireplace, dividing the kitchen area from the family room. Can you spot other details worth highlighting.
