Architecture Design of Five Peaks Lookout House

Description About The Project

Five Peaks Lookout House designed by Scott Edwards Architecture is really impressive project which maximizing the scenery while maintaining an intimate connection to the sloped landscape posed a design challenge. By the talent and experience, the design brings a wort of art to the owner with the warm, modern spaces that immerses dwellers in the Pacific Northwest.

The home organized in a bar running South to North with exterior covered spaces carving away at the volume of the bar. In addition to this, the home features floor to ceiling windows, and sliding doors are used in every east-facing room, all with the intent to blur the line between inside and out. The interiors are modern and clean, using contrasting blacks and whites and polished concrete floors.

Besides, in a dramatic move to maximize the view from the public rooms of the home, the living and dining spaces cantilevered out over a steep drop, capturing a 270 degree view of the site and all five mountain peaks. Also, the cantilever supported by a concrete double sided fireplace and chimney structure and floats above the landscape as it slopes more steeply to the North into the valley of a small perennial creek. The cantilever informs the design language carried throughout the home by inspiring ‘suspended’ elements.

The interior design honors the indoor outdoor aesthetic by relating finish materials to the architecture outside — the main bathroom’s dark wall tile connects to the ebony stained exterior siding, which wraps through the glazing and defines the main hallway. Indeed, elemental materials like concrete, wood, and steel are used throughout, giving the minimalist architecture richness and a natural feel.

Contrasting raw materials like concrete, wood, and steel are used throughout, giving this minimalist house richness and an organic feel. Besides, carefully chosen moments in the interior encourage people to pause and breathe in the views and curated art.
Indeed, a variety of wood accents, like the feature stair treads and the kitchen island, used throughout the home to warm the space and mirror the surrounding forest.

Text by the Architects: Five Peaks Lookout sits at the heart of Oregon’s wine country in the Chehalem Mountains. Perched on a site offering expansive views of five different mountains (Jefferson, Hood, Adams, St. Helens, and Rainier), maximizing the scenery while maintaining an intimate connection to the sloped landscape posed a design challenge. With this challenge also came an opportunity to create a solution unique to the site and the client’s vision.
