I stumbled upon this picture above and I was stunned by how the window was cut into the ceiling and the wall and then connected with the desk. I thought it was pretty amazing and really appreciated the thought process/creativity of the designers. My desire to see the rest of the project was how I found the “The Hoke Residence”, designed by Skylab Architecture. Apparently, it was the home of the Cullen’s in the movie “Twilight”. Here is a description of the project by the Architects….
“M1 is a private residence at the border of Portland’s Forest Park. The residence provides a venue for interplay between the vibrant outdoor environment and dramatic interior spaces that simultaneously shelter occupants, and frame the expanse of the surroundings. The sloping site presented technical challenges, and demanded an innovative approach to marry a desire for a relatively small building footprint and generous and flowing spaces.
