Overlooking the calming views of Bend, Oregon’s lush natural landscape, the High Desert Residence is the epitome of the perfect weekend home away from home. Designed by Hacker Architects as a respite from city living, High Desert Residence boasts of voluminous cubes of different sizes and a number of terraces and courtyards that allow residents to interact with the surrounding landscape.
Large glass openings, some spanning floor-to-ceiling, make appearances throughout the gray cedar-clad façade, allowing a healthy dose of natural light into the home; it also balances the family’s desire for privacy while offering visual contact to nature.
A calming minimalist aesthetic reigns inside the home. Muted autumn color palettes subtly complement the greyish cedar wood walls and light-toned floors. Tasteful contemporary furnishings complete this picture-perfect dwelling.
