Fox Hollow Residence

This design of the Fox Hollow Residence breaks down the scale and the conventional notion of an upscale home by separating the primary functions of the house into a series of linked pods that dance playfully along the sloped terrain. This simple gesture gives a distinct character and function to each of the three zones (utility, living, and bedroom), and the resulting smaller-scale structures reduce the environmental impact of the home on the site.

Simple shed roof forms open to the south, providing both a breathtaking view of the Willamette Valley and the optimal solar orientation for passive heating. The home is also passively cooled through use of ceiling fans, operable windows, and vents that draw cool air from the earth-bermed basement below.

The Fox Hollow Residence demonstrates that architecture can be both environmentally friendly and beautiful. The craftsmanship and richness of materials draws from a Pacific Northwest vernacular through use of natural cedar shingles, custom ironwork, and exposed salvaged timber beams. Every detail has been thoughtfully executed, from the modern steel connections to the traditional Amish wood joinery. By thinking outside of the typical residential box, this home has become a showcase of local craft, sustainability and efficient living.

This project was awarded second place in the 2007 People’s Choice Award for Residential Architecture by the A.I.A. Southwest Oregon Chapter. It was also featured in the Winter 2008-2009 issue of “Eugene Magazine”, Lane County’s Lifestyle Quarterly.

Living Room/Dining Room - Live in a townhouse with a long combo LR/DR. There is no separation between the two areas. The DR has one full wall and the second wall is three windows with a large arched window above. The LR has one full wall, the second wall (directly across) has a fireplace flanked by windows that go to the floor and the third wall is three paneled french door that exits to a deck. My dilemma is how to rearrange the furniture in this room to accomodate a flat screen TV. I prefer not installing it over the fireplace because it would be too high and uncomfortable to watch. The final issue is the ceiling is vaulted, two stories high in the DR dropping to normal ceiling height over the french doors. This makes it almost impossible to split the two rooms with a half wall and/or columns. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What exactly is the paint color? My home has this same wood tone trim and I'm struggling with a white that looks pure white like this one, not one with a yellow (dingy-looking) cast. Thanks!

Have you looked at Sherwin's Extra White?7006? You're right, these walls don't look like there's any undertone, just a clean, fresh white.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to Good Spaces: Mastering the Open Floor Plan
6. Don't let paths of travel be an afterthought. Think about how people will move from one zone to the next. Don't forget to think about doorways and stairs as you allow ample room for circulation. You'll need at least 3 feet of room for paths of travel.
7. Create Not So Open Plans. No longer do we find Dad in the den reading the newspaper and smoking his pipe while Mom is in the kitchen preparing the dinner while the children are in the living room watching Howdy Doody. Now we want spaces that promote togetherness and interaction. Yet, too open can be as stifling as too closed. So create separate zones and areas. Change levels and ceiling heights. Make it so you can pop your head up, see what's going on, and go from there.
Here is another modern split-level design that encourages open-plan living. Notice how the lower level houses the kitchen, the dining room and the living room, all flooded with natural light.
