A Passive House in initial design stages to be located in Philomath, Oregon. This house is located on a heavily wooded site with views and privacy along the North-East quadrant of the side. The house has been designed to take advantage of these views with the main living areas pushed towards this side of the house. As you enter the house, the ceiling is kept low and then expands into a tall cathedral ceiling space at the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The stone fireplace on the east wall is a main point of focus in this space. The master bedroom also has a cathedral ceiling, however this one is curved to enhance this special space.
