    Our client’s modest, three-bedroom house occupies a beautiful, small site having views down the length of Lake Oswego. The design responded to their appreciation of Hawaiian Island/Pacific Rim architecture and to the strict limitation to construction imposed by local zoning. We worked with Forsgren Design Studio on the selection of materials and finishes.

    Built with timeless materials - stone, plaster and a range of woods - this house reflects regional Pacific Northwest design. Sited along Lake Oswego, this home’s views, boathouse and terraces all gracefully connect to the water’s edge.

    The home's landscape draws inspiration from classic traditional Japanese gardens.

    The entry displays a diversity of wood species: Mahogany panels at the wall, a Cedar slat walkway and Douglas Fir framing members. A copper rain chain diverts rain water to the entry planting bed.

    The Great Room sits below a lattice of Douglas Fir beams. Mahogany floors and casework evoke the traditional materials of Pacific Rim architecture.

    The Master Bath features luxurious materials of Mahogany wood and natural stone.
