Scott Edwards Architecture, Portland-base architecture studio has created The Hotchkiss Residence. A house with a simple wooden design is situated on the banks of the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington.1988 square foot house designed for couples in 70’s, which requires a building occupied by people. Here is the architects explanation: “the 1.5 bedroom home responds to amazing views of the river and Mt. Hood beyond. The home, designed by Rick Berry, utilizes the Northwest vernacular, which emphasizes the wood structural system, shields the home from 9 months of rain, and captures winter sunlight. The single slope roof originates over the bedroom and rises to its zenith above the living room. With a budget of $550k, the design is restrained by simplicity, emphases its structural system, compact for an aging client, and built to respond to the quick changing Northwest weather. The home linked by bridges to the owners daughters and sons homes, which sit adjacent, completes the family compound.” Check out the pictures below for more details about The Hotchkiss Residence.
