Conceived as an elegant and playful intersection of inside-out spaces, the Hoke Residence provides a venue for interplay between the vibrant outdoor environment and dramatic interior spaces that simultaneously shelter occupants, and frame the expanse of the surroundings. Living volumes are cantilevered to minimize the building footprint, and simultaneously heighten the light tree- house experience of the principal interior spaces. This duality is mirrored in the dwelling’s flowing spaces, moving between crisp and deftly angular details, and framed views of the forest canopy or the primeval boulders upslope. At once urban and wild, the residence is in harmony with, and a reflection of its location at the border of Portland and Forest Park.
