The second floor living and master wings of this compact modern home occupy two separate square, tall volumes linked via a low-profile entry way. The living wing floor slab is set on concrete piles, floating above the sloping ground of the wooded lot. The structure integrates into the natural setting, reducing its impact. The minimalist modern design palette combines concrete foundations with a timber-framed post and beam structure, wooden roof decks, steel hardware, stucco and cedar siding, and multiple tall windows that overlook the McKenzie River. The separate wings’ shed roofs lift in opposite directions, accommodating transom windows and affording panoramic views of the surrounding drama of forest, basalt cliffs, and river.
In addition to the architectural drawings, this design comes with the following structural drawings: Foundation plan,
floor framing plan, retaining walls and floor details, beam and pier details, shearwall plan, roof framing plan, and column details

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.
