The architecture of the residence was designed in a contemporary style with strong horizontal lines in order to counterbalance the vertical lines of the trees which flood the surrounding area. The different levels and long overhangs support the design intent of strong horizontal lines. This two-story residence, complete with a finished basement, was designed to allow as much natural light through the space as was possible, while still meeting an efficient energy code. A light Dekton material from Cosentino was selected for the cladding of the exterior. This contrasts the dark mullions and roofing, creating a sharp beauty. To emphasize this contrast, a decorative column was added to the residence, 1/3 the breadth of the home, creating a pleasant proportional ratio. The column has an LED panel that illuminates a tall vertical line. This breaks up the horizontal details of the home, reflects the vertical trees, and emphasizes the contrast between materials. Two large windows greet you at the entrance of the residence: one to the left of the entrance and one directly above. Architectural details of thick mullions line the windows and help break up the sunlight filtering in. This element can be found on the south side of the residence, mirroring the tall window on the north side. In addition, this element is also seen on the terrace, creating an enclosed space on the terrace to protect the residence from sunlight or rainfall.
The 82583 Seascape Drive Residence, located in Cannon Beach, Oregon was designed for a family of six. The goal was to design a contemporary residence that accommodates the family needs, while keeping the integrity of the building design and integrating the landscape into the home.
The interiors for the 82583 Seascape Drive Residence were selected in a contemporary style with very subtle nods to traditionalism throughout the space. The colors of the residence were selected in order to tie the interior to the surrounding nature of Cannon Beach, Oregon. Each space is grounded by using neutral colors and brightened by using a pop of color in each space. Through the design of large windows in the architecture of the building, nature is brought into the setting of each room. This becomes a focal point in the spaces where large windows frame the view. A simple ‘less is more’ approach was taken in the selection of the accessories, helping draw the eye to the furniture or the outdoors. An additional focus in each space was the selection of a rug, as there are white oak floors on each level. This helps to soften each environment and add texture as they define each space.
The kitchen was designed to be the central focal point in the residence. With the incorporation of Thermador products, the kitchen is equipped with all the utilities to create a gourmet meal. This modern kitchen was designed with strong horizontal lines, similar to the architecture. To offset the horizontal lines, vertical lines were included in the slatted white oak cabinets and the side of the island. Polished bronze is used as an accent material as a pop of color to balance the light white oak, gray marble, and charcoal gray lacquer cabinets. Clerestory windows are designed above the kitchen cabinets, bringing natural daylight into the space. These windows are also included in the interior walls, creating a unique design feature. This is an additional element to bring natural light into the space and a feeling of openness.
