A two-story, three bedroom, home design focused on maximising views of the Pacific Ocean yet while still taking into consideration protection from storms and privacy from neighbors.
An open plan that features a central vaulted area around a large fireplace mass.
Three complete bedroom suites with separation, individual "master bath" style facilities, ocean views, and private balcony decks.
Kitchen, Diningroom, Greatroom, and exterior patio areas compatible with casual entertaining.
Exterior and interior finishes in nature-based colors and textures that help carry out the craftsman theme yet are low maintenance.
Level One Plan, Preliminary Design, Weiner Residence, Yachats, Oregon, USA, 2021.
The heart of this home, a large stone fireplace, is centrally located in the vaulted window-lit Greatroom/Entry bay of the house.
On the west, the Greatroom features near-180 degree ocean views and yet is still afforded a sence of privacy and storm protection from extended wing walls on the north and south.
On the east, the Entry is a two story space open to the bridge above on the second level which is accessible by a beautiful, pole-less natural wood circular stair.
The exterior Entry wall features a large stone mass to the facade, is surrounded by windows, and is accented by a large round stained glass window.
The sheltered Entry features a large porch area with built-in planters and a 3-column stone fountain.
Entrance to the ground level bedroom suite is easily accessible from the Entry and Greatroom yet strategically sheltered by the mass of the fireplace core.
Its location on the north side of the home isolates it from potential disturbances from winter storms coming in from the south and noise generated by the Kitchen and Laundry.
The more "public" functional areas of the home, the Garage, Mud/Laundry, Powder, Kitchen and Dining room are located on the south of the home.
The Garage itself helps to shelter the entrance of the home from north-blowing winter storms.
Level Two Plan, Preliminary Design, Weiner Residence, Yachats, Oregon, USA, 2021.
The large, two-story, vaulted Greatroom separates, both visually and acoustically, the two upstairs bedroom suites.
Like the bedroom suite on the first level, both these suites have great ocean views, private "master bath" style bathrooms, walk-in closets, and private balconies.
A second floor sitting room and Library along with an Office with ocean-views and balcony are also located on the south next to the Guest Bedroom suite.
A bridge, open to the Entry on one side and the Greatroom on the other, connect the north and south areas.
