Modern Home with Low Energy Lighting by Webster Wilson

June 17, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Home Design, Modern Home

This Modern Home with Low Energy Lighting is designed by Webster Wilson.
Webster Wilson, the designer of this house on the slope of an extinct volcano in inner city Portland, implemented his vision of modernist design with a humanistic slant. While being designed in modern style the house is complimented by generous use of natural finished wood and stone. Principals of abundant open space and natural light are implemented in the house. It is situated so high that commanding views of the neighbor could be seen almost from every room in all four levels. The clad of the house is done in a dark-stained knotty cedar and a weathered bark. The total house’s area is 2600 square feet. There are 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, working studio, kitchen, laundry, master suite with roof top deck and so on. Low energy lighting scheme, windows with thermally broken aluminum frames, solar panels on the roof and plenty other things implement principals of environment friendly house design.
