Black Butte House
This project, completed in 2016, expands and completely transforms an existing residence at Black Butte Ranch in Central Oregon. The original 5,370 square-foot house, built in the early 1970s, occupies a spectacular sloping site directly adjacent to the Ranch’s central meadow and provides expansive views of the Cascade Mountains.
Intended to both honor and enhance the architecture of the original house, the project completely renovates the home’s three floors and adds approximately 1,200 square feet. The exterior design continues the classic northwest modern language of one of the early structures on the Ranch with a palette of wood and stone that further anchors the home to its surroundings and provides gracious exterior connections and transitions on all sides.
