This cozy black cladding house designed by Bestor Architecture is nestled on a 10-acre site bordering national forest land and the mountains in Bend, Oregon. This contemporary dwelling was created as a forever home for a family of four and to accommodate multiple generations as the family ages. 

Oriented on the site to maximize views of the spectacular Three Sisters volcanic peaks and the forest, this dwelling is designed to be a retreat for the family. Spread out over a single level, the layout was broken up into several volumes. One end encompasses the private areas — bedrooms and bathrooms, the central core connects to the garage and workshop where the owner works on custom bikes.

What We Love: This black cladding house features large windows and built-in seating that highlights the surrounding terrain. The overall design of this home has a touch of whimsy, adding to the relaxing environment that this dwelling offers. We are especially loving the warmth of the wood cladding both indoors and out and the spectacular location of this home, with views of the Three Sisters Mountains!

The interiors are characterized by whimsical color and an eclectic mix of vintage and craft-made furnishings and decor. Rugs, vases, and a silver tray that was inherited by the owner help to infuse personality into the home, helping them feel connected. Despite its modern architecture, this home is loaded with warmth thanks to wood flooring, a layering of textures, and upholstered furnishings.

The master bedroom features its own private deck. With no visible support from the roofline, the bedroom feels like an opulent tent. Magnificent views from this outdoor oasis have made this the owner’s favorite spot to relax in the entire home.
