Siskiyou House is a single-family residence in Portland Oregon completed in 2016. The house is 3,500 square feet on three levels, with a detached single car garage. The project is located on a 50’ x 100’ level parcel in the Beaumont-Fremont neighborhood, which is oriented along a rise in the North East quadrant of the city with a view to the downtown skyline.
The design is a riff on the foursquare craftsman type predominant in Portland. Rooms and spaces are arranged in quadrants that are expressed asymmetrically on the facade with cantilevered offsets, floor-to-ceiling shifts, and subtractive volumes. The envelope is comprised of painted board and batten, intended to establish a secondary scale of texture and pattern relating to the composition of large windows placed in the corners of the house.
