The Rhoten Residence
Salem, Oregon

at Arbor South Architecture

The Rhoten Residence is a private residence situated in a filbert orchard on a hill overlooking Salem and the surrounding valleys. The tower was a major design feature, serving as an observation room for the tremendous views. The residence was one of the first designs I worked on at Arbor South which incorporated sustainable features, most notably the passive heating trombe wall in the kitchen and the concrete floors. I was brought on to the project after schematic design to build a 3d model for the design developement. I completed construction documents, and used the 3d model to work out some particularly tricky beam intersection issues near the tower. This was also the first project that I assisted with the construction observation on.
