The front porch transitions gracefully via a slate-floor entryway into the central space where the living, dining, and cooking areas overlap and interact. This great room expands to a study / guest room, and opens onto the partly-sheltered deck overlooking the garden.
A centrally located wood stove anchors the room, and an altar peacefully delineates the passage into the private zone: a master bedroom and a light-filled bathroom. Exposed wood structure and trim frame the naturally-dyed plaster walls.
This beautiful, bright and modern cottage is located in Oregon and designed by Nir Pearlson Architect. This sustainable hybrid timber-frame Mini Home combines cozy spaces with an expansive character. The interiors weave into the surrounding garden, and the home celebrates the cycle of seasons.
