Architecture Design of Heartwood Residence 

Description About The Project

Heartwood Residence designed by William Kaven Architecture is a a striking modern structure fronted in glass and framed in cedar wood, board – formed concrete, and aluminum. Indeed, by the talent and many years of experience, the architect offers a contemporary, classic home which is in constant conversation with the outdoors. Inspired by the architects’ New Mexico origins, the main house and guest house form a one – story compound organized around a central courtyard. Where a mature maple tree was preserved as the centerpiece.

The family who commissioned the home expressed a desire for a design that would accommodate extended visits from friends, children and grandchildren. While still offering distinct zones of privacy. Therefore, the solution was a design that recalls a scaled – down compound. Also, complete with a detached casita that can accommodate up to two guests.

With an exterior constructed of cedar, aluminum and board – formed concrete, the Heartwood home is a modern addition to the neighborhood. Which consists primarily of 60s- and 70s – era ranch – style homes. In addition to this, the back patio includes an outdoor living area organized around a large wood – burning fireplace with a backdrop that includes the Lake Oswego River Bridge and one of the city’s premier riverfront parks.

Once insides, the home’s interior design showcases the owners’ substantial collection of Modern American and Italian furniture. Also, the understated but sophisticated material palette includes rift – sawn white oak cabinetry, Corian countertops, exposed aggregate concrete floors, built – in fireplaces, chevron – patterned oak floors and plaster walls.

The living, dining, and bar area — a contiguous unit is arranged across a glass – fronted open room that overlooks the water from one end and the courtyard from the other. Indeed, the room’s most prominent feature is its view of the outdoors.

Once insides, the interior design of the Heartwood Residence delicately weaves natural tones to create a polished – yet – subtle counterpoint to the environment. An eye – catching modular sofa by Mario Bellini brings a burst of autumnal color into the room. But pared down by the neutral tones of a marble – topped Antonio Citterio coffee table from B&B Italia.
