Bayshore, Waldport, Oregon - 2004





THE PROJECT To design a contemporary 2400+ sq.ft. multi-level ocean view home for two Portland business men
who both like their privacy, and enjoy entertaining.
To create a dynamic architectulral solution that will live up to the feel they had with "Dune Rider",
an earlier vacation home designed for them by d holmes chamberlin jr - architect - llc.
THE SITE
A relatively level site on the edge of a bluff above Bayshore on the central Oregon coast.
Existing CC&Rs have height restrictions which would limit standard design solutions for
the amount of square footages necessary to the Client.

THE CLIENT
Kay Nelson & Darrel Gustofson
Portland, Oregon

THE BUILDER
The project was not built due to the onset of illness with one of the clients who needed a dryer climate.

The Concept
By digging into the bluff face and utilizing flat roofs, the necessary square footages
can be acquired in a subterranian level that is still open to west for ocean views.

In the preliminary Design Phase, two homes were designed and two models built.
One design was to explore dynamic geometrical shapes for a truly unique, contempory home.
The second design was to explore more traditional contempory lines.
