From the architect. Construction has completed on Sawtooth in Lake Oswego. Award-winning Waechter Architecture was given the task of designing a compact 8-unit apartment complex whereby each individual unit would have optimum privacy, as well as natural light and a view.

WA’s solution for each unit was to create one generously volumed living space with precisely one east-facing view window and one ambient light window. In this way, each unit maintains privacy, focuses its attention on the framed river / mountain view and is generously day-lit by a high clerestory window.  A sawtooth roof form was used to achieve this configuration.

Each 1 bedroom 600 square foot unit is organized on two floors with living space above and sleeping below.  The uphill 4 units are elevated by a one-level parking podium allowing them views over the downhill units.  The building’s walls and roofs are painted a monochromatic dark bronze giving them a sculptural quality

Simple yet clean. Whats up with no patio, balcony, deck, nada? People just walk straight from their front door to their car when they go outside eh.
