The Mizuno House is located on a forested south-facing slope in the South Hills of Eugene. Cut into the upper part of the sloping site, the simple three-story rectangular form rises above the oak trees, landscape, and approach drive below. Bays projecting from the ends lend a vertical emphasis to the house which is capped by an upper band of vertical wood boards and a strong overhanging hip roof.

As is the case with all of our work, our attitudes toward daylight, integration with the landscape, and unity of all the rooms in the plan were critical to the success of this project. Our redesign gives natural light to every room in the house. Since the family spends most of their time in the kitchen, morning room, bedrooms, living and dining rooms, those spaces are privileged with large, south-facing view windows that open onto the golf course.

Information coming soon.
