See this modernized ranch house overlooking the scenic Deschutes River

Giulietti Schouten Weber Architects has completely modernized an existing ranch house that is perched on the edge of a canyon overlooking the Deschutes River in central Oregon. The original dwelling lacked personality, unlike its charismatic owners. Three modern additions redefine the structure and create a more functional plan for the retired ranch owners.

Doubling as a gallery, the new entry addition pierces the existing house and roof and emerges on the other side as a monitor, drawing in more light. Several level changes that segmented the existing living spaces were realigned to unify the kitchen, dining, and living areas, and with the help of a small addition, a more useful space for entertaining was created.

The owner’s bedroom suite was also streamlined and expanded to make room for a fitness space previously located in the garage. Glass walls open up the south facade to allow light deep into the space while maximizing views of the canyon below, and a minimalist interior allows the couple’s extensive art collection to be showcased throughout the home.

Dark vertical siding blends with the natural landscape while knotty, horizontal, cedar planks provide a bold but natural accent to the exterior facade.

What We Love: This existing ranch house nestled on the edge of a canyon has been beautifully modernized to meet the lifestyle needs of its inhabitants. The architects did a fabulous job of transforming this home into light-filled living spaces with expansive walls that serve as a backdrop to the owner’s art collection. We are especially loving this home’s idyllic location, boasting awe-inspiring views of the Deschutes River.
