Broken Top - Tam McArthur 1
With the number of empty lots in Broken Top dwindling, it was lucky that Steve Van Sant had an opportunity to design two homes on Tam McArthur with only one lot separating them. The lot backs up to the practice green and overlooks a large water feature to the clubhouse. This home has a more refined style with a little Asian flare showing up in elements like the barrel-vaulted entry gate with exposed custom built radial glulam beams. High clerestory windows bring light in, which is then diffused with large light shelves built above rooms flanking the entry. A mixture of structural and non-structural glulams define spaces as well as creating beautiful ornamentation for some of the ceilings. The mixture of alternate lap cedar siding, natural stone walls, concrete tile roof, and expanses of glass come together beautifully in this home.
