Overlooking Yaquina Bay, this 6,000 sq. ft. private residence by Capri Architecture and S&J Construction is designed and built to optimize the ocean views while keeping the occupants comfortable. The home features one large shed roof to create high vaulted ceilings and open gathering spaces. The open-concept living, kitchen and dining has many extra-large windows that create a naturally bright interior and allows the homeowners to comfortably watch the colourful Oregon sun sets.
