Architect Fernando Rodriguez’s greenhouses in Bend are on sale for up to $3,880,000
From every angle, architect Fernando Rodriguez’s attractive new home in Bend offers surprises. The Brazilian eucalyptus facade provides privacy from passers-by, conceals that the rooms have glass walls overlooking the interior courtyard, and is designed around an existing ponderosa pine tree.
The contemporary-style residence at 61919 Hosmer Lake Drive is on the market for $3,880,000. It is the first of many custom residences created by the Madrid-based architect for the Malaspina development in the Tetherow resort community.
Rodriguez’s firm, studio FRPO, Rodriguez & Oriol Architecture, describes the one-story house as “porous.” There are no load-bearing exterior walls, allowing doors, windows and clear glass walls to draw in natural light and distant views of the Cascade Mountains.
Elegant aluminum composite panels hang from the outer edges of the thermoplastic polyolefin roof. Coverings cover wood ceilings for outdoor entertaining spaces.
Among the 3,834 square feet of interior living space is a dining area with exposed ceiling beams backed by hidden appliances. Hiding brackets and screws is difficult to implement, but contributes to a pleasing aesthetic appearance.
A concrete fireplace surround faces the open kitchen, where appliances are elegantly integrated into the large island.
The house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a powder room. A private entrance leads to a space that could be an office, studio or guest suite.
“The three-year design and construction project, completed in 2021, has produced a stunning residence,” said listing agent Jennifer Stewart of Cascade Hasson Sotheby’s International Realty.
Stewart said Rodriguez signed on for the Bend project because developer Gerardo Pandal of Malaspina is a friend. Due to the epidemic, the architect visited the construction site from Spain for the first time in 2022.
Some of the energy-wise features of the home built by Bend-based Bighorn Construction are heated concrete floors, a fireplace, electric heat pumps and an electric vehicle charging station.
The multi-faceted courtyard has dining spaces under the stars and an outdoor kitchen with a built-in barbecue.
SZABO Landscaping of Bend installed hydroponic native plants, an automatic drip irrigation system, a water recycling feature and a rock garden.
Rodriguez designed another site-specific home with hemlock siding next door at 61913 Hosmer Lake Drive, which is on the market for $3,680,000.
Three internal courtyards of different sizes provide natural views within the surroundings of the house. Inside, the living space is 4,215 square feet and includes five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a powder room. One of the bedrooms has a separate entrance.
“The sculptural quality of the exterior is matched by light-filled, warm and inviting interiors,” said Stewart, the listing agent. “The restrained, neutral palette ensures visual continuity from room to room, and invites the owner to furnish in his or her own individual style.”
A spiral staircase leads to the deck. The three-car garage has a large storage room.
Both properties are approximately half an acre in size.
Malaspina’s design-build program works with clients who are looking for a suitable piece of land or who already have land to build a home on, Stewart said. In addition to representing clients in real estate transactions, she collaborates with owners on design, interior decoration and development.
