Newberg Residence is a single-family 1,440-sqft (134-sqm) residence and standing next 550-sqft (51-sqm) guest house. Located in Newberg, Oregon, United States, the home was designed by Cutler Anderson Architects in 2013.
The design attempts to make the pond and residence a single entity in which the owners can enjoy and connect with the wild creatures that come to the water on both regular and varied schedules. To this end, the building was placed as a bridge across the north end of the pond. The pond itself was enlarged and loosely ordered to integrate with the structure of the residence.
The site plan was organized so that visitors park their vehicles 150 feet away. They then walk through the forest to a bridge crossing a small section of the pond, and into the main entry. The broad vista of the pond becomes visible only upon opening the front door. It is the hope that this experience will be memorable to the visitor.
