Oak Street, Cannon Beach

Posted on July 2nd, by raskin in New Construction. Comments Off on Oak Street, Cannon Beach

This beachfront house provides plenty of room for an extended family while being carefully integrated into the sloping sight to give both views and privacy. Inspired by the NW Regional style, the entry level appears as a one story structure, with a series of simple roof forms.  Due to the slope, the house becomes three levels, with the lowest level turned into a swimming pool that opens out to the sand dune that becomes an outdoor room.  The innovative use of concrete decks provides visual lightness and becomes part of the interplay of cedar, stone, and copper used as exterior materials.
