Fennel Residence in Portland by Robert Harvey Oshatz Architect

June 21, 2009

Fennell Residence designed by Robert Harvey Oshatz Architect, located in Portland, Oregon, USA. There‚Äôs something so romantic about living waterside. One way to amp up the romance is to take the dwelling off the shore and put it right onto the water, as Portland, Oregon-based architect Robert Oshatz did for his clients. Oshatz wanted to design a house that would only function if it were situated on water, not something that could work equally well on land. The house is kept afloat by 80 foot Douglas fir logs, all locally sourced and Cedar shingles clad the exterior faces. The interior is similarly clothed in quality material finishes. Built in cabinets and storage made of American cherry and Brazilian cherry floors and stairs add a warmth to the house’s atmosphere. To complete the look, a floor to ceiling glass sliding door opens up onto an uninterrupted vista of the river.
