hood river home office

Home Office Design Hood River


This home office is a simple, detached building nestled in the oaks 200 feet from the main home. The siting respects the surrounding landscape, capturing views of Mt. Hood and the valley beyond. During the day, it provides a private place to work and at the end of the day, it becomes a casual gathering place for family and friends.

The structure has a concrete floor, plywwod interior, laminate beams, maple trim, wood windows, and standard "off the shelf" doors. The color of the exterior cementitious board was chosen to blend in with the rich red color of the soil and surrounding vegetation. For the design, there were no drawings and only one site visit. All design issues were resolved using sketches and telephone conferences.
