Frankel Residence

The Frankel Residence is located on 40 acres of agricultural land in Central Oregon. A raised concrete plinth elevates three pavilions above the natural arid landscape ground plane. Sited to take advantage of magnificent views of the Three Sisters to the west and Mount Jefferson to the north, deep overhangs and louvers shield the residence from climatic elements. Colored to blend with the surrounding landscape, the pavilions are connected to one another by enclosed wood and glazed passageways. Two fireplace chimneys soar above the horizontal composition and a double allee of deciduous trees runs the length of the landscape element.
