Eco Modern Home on the Columbia River

This is the Vancouver Airport Home, or the Hotchkiss Residence, located along the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington.  It was designed by Rick Berry of Scott Edwards Architecture and built by Hammer & Hand for retired couple in need of a single-level, one-bedroom abode.  The owners have lived on the site for 40 years and the existing structure was recycled prior to building this one.
