A Gathering Place for Family
A simple palette of natural materials complements a comfortable home in a dramatic setting
Jean Rittenour wanted to complete her mother’s plan of building a family house at the dramatic spot where river meets harbor in Bandon, Oregon. Wanting a house that captured the feeling of standing on the bluff, the Rittenours collaborated with Johnston Architects and ended up with a comfortable, welcoming home. Sidebars include information on innovative uses for concrete and how to use local textures and colors for a home’s design palette.
