Projects in Progress

Metke Pl.

- Awbrey Butte
This home sits near the end of a quiet street on Awbrey Butte looking west at the Cascades over the homes and trees below. Building in such a beautiful environment necessitates a lot of outdoor living spaces to take full advantage. With the varying weather in Bend, we fell that is important to not only have a lot of outdoor living spaces, but to also have a variety. This home features an East facing walled courtyard with a water feature to take advantage of early morning sunshine or to escape the later afternoon heat. It also features a mixture of uncovered and covered decks, one of which houses a 4-seasons Outdoor Kitchen with natural gas heaters. We plan on breaking ground in the Spring of 2019 and showcasing the home on the 2020 COBA Tour of Homes. We hope to see you there.

Broken Top - Tam McArthur

With the number of empty lots in Broken Top dwindling, it was lucky that Steve Van Sant had an opportunity to design two homes on Tam McArthur with only one lot separating them. The lot backs up to the practice green and overlooks a large water feature to the clubhouse. This home has a more refined style with a little Asian flare showing up in elements like the barrel-vaulted entry gate with exposed custom built radial glulam beams. High clerestory windows bring light in, which is then diffused with large light shelves built above rooms flanking the entry. A mixture of structural and non-structural glulams define spaces as well as creating beautiful ornamentation for some of the ceilings. The mixture of alternate lap cedar siding, natural stone walls, concrete tile roof, and expanses of glass come together beautifully in this home.

North Rim - Wild Rye 3

We are very happy to be working on another project in North Rim.  Steve Van Sant designed this home for an active couple who are looking forward to having a home in Bend and taking advantage of all the outdoor activities it has to offer.  An entry bridge crosses over a water feature and passes a waterfall on the way to the barrel-vaulted glass and mahogany entry.  Most of the main floor is vaulted with tongue and groove ceilings running between structural glulam beams and extending out into the deep overhangs, protecting outdoor living spaces.  The exterior siding is a mixture of stone, clear cedar ship lap siding, and stucco with a standing seam metal roof that wraps over the top fascia, creating a very clean look.  The interior is also going to be very clean with ribbon sapele, granite and glass.  Kristy Yozamp loves their taste and is coming up with some great options for the interior.

Crosswater - Twin Rivers

Pronghorn - Canyon View Loop

Steve Van Sant designed this home 8 years ago and now we are happy to have the opportunity to build it.  The home sits above the sheer rock banks of the canyon on the signature 8th hole of the Fazio golf course at Pronghorn with views following the fairway down through the canyon as well as out to the Cascades.  A generous use of stone anchors the home to the site and pairs well with the stucco and exposed beam work to give the home a Mediterranean look that gives Pronghorn its unique feel.  To take advantage of the picturesque environment, the home has outdoor spaces ranging from an entry courtyard with open and enclosed spaces, a covered upper floor deck looking down into the canyon, and an expansive paver patio with built-in stone seating, a gas fire pit and BBQ, and a hot tub with a pergola above it, all looking out to the course and the mountains beyond.  Inside, the public spaces in the home are all open to each other, utilizing a massive back to back fireplace, exposed beams, and changes in the ceiling to define the connected spaces.  The Master wing of the home sits lower than the main floor providing some separation and reducing the overall massing of the home.  The upper floor, which is where the three Guest Suites and large Rec Room are, is accessed either by a set of switchback stairs or by using the elevator. Kristy Yozamp has already put in a lot of time with the homeowners to get all of the interior details dialed in. We can’t wait to see this one finished in 2016.

Awbrey Butte - Starview

Not only did Steve Van Sant design this home on the NW side of Awbrey Butte, but he designed the two across the street as well.  The garage of this home is dug into the steep hillside to keep the profile of the house low and out of the uphill neighbor's view, while maintaining the mountain views of the homeowners.  Even with the dug-in garage, the lot is steep enough that the garage floor will be a suspended concrete slab with crawlspace below it.  The Main Floor of the home sits lower than the Garage and is accessed by stairs spanning from a retaining wall to an entry deck.  The Master Suite and all public parts of the home are on the Main Floor with views out to the Cascades and decks for almost the entire length of the home with a variety of open and covered space to take full advantage of the varied weather of Central Oregon.  The stairs to the Lower Floor wrap around the double height stone fireplace and enter into the Rec Room.  Three Guest Suites, a Craft Room, and a lower deck with a hot tub finish off the lower floor.  Cami Clawson is working away on all of the interior details to make sure all of the clients’ selections are made before then need them in the field to keep the project on schedule and moving forward.
