A new weekend home was designed according to DCA’s clients’ request that it be rustic yet refined, with a comfortable “scandi” feel.
Architecturally, the dramatic massing and rooflines are nestled on a hillside overlooking the Columbia River in Oregon. Ample fenestration and outdoor space allow the occupants access to stunning views of the surroundings. The serious black exterior belies a cheery, whimsical interior. Light airy room volumes are enlivened by bold colors and patterns in the furniture and decoration. Native American rugs and local folk art and found objects ground the home and add coziness. DCA worked closely with the clients to combine the architecture and decorating into a bright uncluttered home they would feel comfortable in from the moment they moved in.
