Cannon Beach, OR – October 9, 2019 – Set at the edge of Oregon’s coastal forest, this glass house provides commanding beach views. Built as a weekend getaway for a young family seeking communion with nature, the space is an antidote to the hectic buzz of urban living.

The central challenge the designers faced was finding a way to fit this home into a sensitive site without destroying the qualities that initially drew the clients here. It was vital to maximize ocean views from the main living areas while keeping height within the tight zoning regulations envelope.

By excavating the private quarters of the lower level slightly, we could place the kitchen, dining and living areas upstairs to capture views without exceeding the vertical limitations.

The projecting green roof floats above and shades the glass enclosure, clad in copper that will oxidize naturally to merge with the green of the forest. A motorized shade system provides privacy and glare control, while a simple palette of honed basalt, white oak and waxed steel keeps the interior harmonized with the surrounding environment.

Escaping life in the city as often as they can, the new owners can enjoy this retreat at the spectacular continental edge more than just on weekends. The moment they cross the bridge and enter this special place they are surrounded by the coastal magic that drew them to this spot on the Oregon coast when their house was just a dream.
