Coastal Residence by Boora Architects

View all 11 Photos

Located on the Oregon coast, this 2,865 square foot home is open to all the natural landscape with 180 degree views. The design by Boora Architects  employs a duality of openness and expansive views with spaces that are both private and quiet. Organized into three parts, joined in U-shape formation around a central courtyard fronting the view, the main living area is the upper floor in the larger of the two buildings. Extensively glass-walled, a large covered deck extends the indoor space by nearly an additional 1/3. The lower level has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a flex room that can be converted into a guest room or any other space. The second living area includes a 295 square foot office and bathroom with a garage below. At ground level, a 45 foot long covered walkway sided in horizontal slats forms the base of the U-shape, the landscaped courtyard fuses the building with walkway, creating focus on where interior and exterior spaces merge. At night the residence appears as a lantern, and the central courtyard is its hearth.
