Plan Description

Nir Pearlson designed this 800 sq. foot two story home to function as a backyard cottage. Two bedrooms are on the lower level; kitchen and living space are on the floor above and open to the charming porch you see here. While this version of the cottage tucks into the toe of a slope, it could easily be adapted for other site conditions.

Meet the Designer - Nir Pearlson

null -
It is my charge as an architect to create a built environment that promotes all aspects of human well-being, while respecting and sustaining the multiple eco-systems within the natural world around us. In generating design solutions I seek appropriate use of resources, longevity and adaptability.
Nir Pearlson heads an architectural firm in Eugene, Oregon. He received his Architectural Degree from the University of Oregon, following years of traveling and living in diverse countries and cultures. Nir seeks to identify the subtle contextual patterns of each site, listens for the hidden narrative within the client’s program, and celebrates the project's essence through its design. Nir combines hands-on experience as a craftsman and builder, with an artistic attention to composition and detail.

Since its foundation in 2003, Nir’s firm has received regional and national acclaim and awards for a diverse body of commercial and residential projects. Practicing architecture as a means to promote the well-being of individuals and communities, the firm designs with rigor and simplicity, and strives for beauty and balance. The resulting designs respect existing architectural tradition and context, lead with design innovation, and seek to sustain our natural world's climate, terrain, resources, and all its living systems.

Over the past decade as economies and sensibilities shifted, clients have sought appropriate-scale living. In response, Nir has designed numerous small homes and generated a set of mini-home design principles. These principles are carefully applied in the design of small-footprint houses that feel expansive, yet nurture the diverse activities and needs of families and individuals.
