Designed by Robert Harvey Oshatz Architect, located on Oregon Coast, this house offers amazing beach views. Called Panet Raymond Beach House, is a small beach retreat for a Portland family, the house appears to grow from the sand like the dunes which surround it. Yet, the sloping roof also gives an impression of the house bracing against the winter storms which blow in accross the Pacific.
The stained concrete floors of the main living spaces are level with the sand outside, which when combined with the expansive glass wall, and the way the ceiling material seems to move through the glazing unobstructed, help to break down the definition between the interior spaces and the beach beyond.
