Graceful Glass Link House located in the Southwest hills outside of Portland, was designed by Edwards Architecture in stunning modern style. The house is carefully positioned on the site to balance the family’s desire for a private, inwardly focused space of retreat with views of the surrounding forest and carefully cultivated gardens. Actually, the home is nestled into the hillside with the combination of glass, concrete, natural stone and wood is reflected in the material palette of the landscape. Also, it allows the great room and courtyard to be open and airy, with the quieter areas of the home sheltered by the earth and the trees.

In addition to this, the house brings the stunning outdoor living spaces with a pool, patio, spa, fire pit and outdoor dining area occupy these terraces. Also, the high end interiors combined by wonderful living room idea; dining room idea; kitchen idea; bedroom idea; bathroom idea; wine room idea, media room idea. Without a doubt, it is a great house for family with a passion for entertaining, nature, Japanese design and time spent together.

Achieving this harmony came with challenges. There are views of the surrounding forest front and back, spaces for activity and rest, a flat main level despite the steeply sloping site. And, rooms that were functional for both entertainment and privacy. So, Glass Link resolved these challenges by dividing the house into three main components and carefully nestling them into the site.

The landscaped granite terraces include a pool, spa, fire pit, and dining area.
The “active” wing of the home contains the workout room, sauna, media room, guest bedrooms, wine room, and hidden whiskey room – accessed through a secret latch in the bookshelf at the bottom of the stairs.

Moreover, the center of the home contains the kitchen, living, and dining area. It is enclosed on each side by 48-feet of retractable glass doors, blurring the line between inside and outside.

Obviously, the home has a simple palette of wood, steel, stone, and glass, connecting the residence to its surroundings.
Besides, the en-suite bathroom has a warm wood accent wall with varying tones. It includes a horizontal shelving niche with hidden lighting.

Text by the Architects: Graceful Glass Link House was designed for a growing family with a passion for entertaining, nature, and Japanese design. The home was a collaborative effort between the Scott|Edwards Architecture design team and the family—a merger of sensitive expressions of the family’s lifestyle, celebrations of the natural features of the site, and plenty of experimental design approaches. The result is a graceful home with a direct connection to nature, perfect for gatherings with family and friends, while equally suited for quieter moments.
