This beautiful and natural house design idea is the Garren residence located in Bend, Oregon. Designed by PIQUE Architects, this Garren residence is situated on a high desert prairie site and is a very low-slung building, with strong horizontal elements to visually tie the building to the landscape.
From the architects:
Three parallel axis walls orient the house toward prominent views and define outdoor rooms expanding the small footprint into the landscape. The structure features a central void that further integrates the exterior and interior. This void delivers natural light to the basement rooms as well as provides a private exterior gathering space in the center of the house.
