Inspired by stark contrasts, this house for a photographer follows a simple idea: a volume of light lifts up a heavy mass. Public spaces, like the kitchen, living and dining are downstairs, while more private spaces are upstairs. This 2,000 square foot, three bedroom, two bathroom house is very simple and is designed for a typical Portland 50'x100' lot. A roof deck provides ample outdoor space with expansive views.
