The Noble House
Bend, Oregon

Lot 109 is a prime location on the picturesque 17th hole of the Tetherow Golf Course. For the homeowners, it was very important to capitalize on the views of the course, the clubhouse, and the panorama of cascade mountain peaks, while still considering the privacy challenges posed by the two adjacent home sites and the players along the golf course.

A substantial site and programming analysis document was compiled to help decipher the client’s needs for connections both within the building itself, as well as to the many outdoor and semi-outdoor spaces in and around the home.

The structure was elevated and sited as close to the fairway, a reclaimed pumice quarry, as reasonable to archive the desired quarry and mountain views from key areas of the home. A datum wall clad in 3 meter tall porcelain panels provides an orienting element as one moves through the network of connected volumes and zones.

Radiant heat, a hidden 3.2 kW PV array, high efficiency boilers, plus a Spark Modern strip fireplace help maintain the comfort of the home throughout the harsh winter months. Deep roof overhangs and an integrated system of automated blinds help protect the home from the intensive summer sun.
