Hendricks park residence
Create a home for a growing family that offered modern functional spaces with amazing views overlooking a historic park.
The Hendricks Park home was designed to have a light and airy interior, with ample space to entertain and allow the clients' children to play, while also offering areas for solitude and reflection. The property itself sat on a hillside directly next to a park and running trails near the University of Oregon, necessitating a design that took full advantage of the scenery. However, the sloped site offered unique challenges for the goal of connecting indoor and outdoor spaces.
Living spaces and bedrooms were designed to face out to fully soak in the views and sunshine, while still maintaining a level of privacy for the occupants. “It definitely had a lighter, brighter feel than other designs I’ve done,” explains Iverson, principal at Jordan Iverson Signature Homes. The home’s blended-function great room had zones for dining, cooking and living.
With views top of mind, Iverson sought a linear hearth solution that would complement the vaulted ceilings and expansive windows, while still being proportional to the space. “This is the first design where I incorporated windows fully surrounding a fireplace,” Iverson says. He chose a Heat & Glo Mezzo direct vent gas fireplace to add coziness and achieve the industrial modern aesthetics for which he is known. For the fireplace surround, Jordan used reclaimed wood and blackened steel to create the room’s centerpiece. “The Mezzo’s clean look tied cohesively into the overall design of the wall,” he said.
The main areas of the home are augmented by expansive windows to bring in light and to embrace the views. The harmony between inside and out was further enhanced by fire station-style steel and glass garage doors in the dining room, which open out onto a large, two-story deck. Other showstopping details of the home include custom shelves with a scaffold ladder and bathroom featuring a custom mosaic tile backsplash that took days to create.
