Nathan Good Architects has designed a new contemporary house that’s nestled into a bluff above the scenic Deschutes River in Central Oregon.

Designed to enable the owners to “thrive in place” with single level living, the house, named Live Edge, is tucked amongst rock outcroppings and juniper trees, and has views of the cattle grazing lands below.

A curved entry wall escorts visitors into the home and widens to an expansive view of the valley beyond. A simple live edge wood slab serves as a bench for removing shoes upon entering the home.

The open-plan interior of the home features natural materials, a dining area with a  sustainably harvested Sapele wood dining table sporting its live edge, and wood floors throughout the home that came from hardwoods salvaged from shipping crates.
