This Contemporary Residence Overlooks a Private Courtyard

Jordan Iverson helped design a panoramic home that overlooks a private courtyard. For many architects it is important to take advantage of a beautiful view. This home makes the outdoor view the focal point through the use of window-covered walls.

The 'Serendipity House' is located in Eugene, Oregon, and overlooks a private courtyard. The home features a double-height great room that is surrounded by window-covered walls. The windows provide an abundance of natural light as well as a view of the outdoors. The interior features an open-concept design, which is divided up by a gas fire feature that is made from reclaimed wood. The unique combination of materials manages to create a sense of harmony between the interior and the outdoor environment.

The contemporary home demonstrates one way that designers can take advantage of a unique view.
