JUMA architects transformed a typical 1976 bungalow into a contemporary villa with a pleasant holiday feeling.
Nothing remains of the original layout. The changes start with the entrance door, which has been moved to a different location. The stairs to the basement and the attic were removed and replaced by two stair hatches, freeing up a considerable floor area that previously only served as circulation space. The garage was sacrificed as well. Not only because of the space it occupied, but mainly because it completely blocked the view on the most beautiful part of the garden. The unused attic space above the garage was opened up to the roof; in this way, JUMA created the perfect place to house the kitchen. The massive Vertigo lamp was hung above the central kitchen island, where it comes fully into its own.
The Deschutes House is a river house designed by FINNE Architects, located on a narrow site facing the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon. The house has been sited to preserve a beautiful stone ledge close to the water, with the main wood deck hovering a few inches above the stone. All the major spaces open up to the river, which usually has a continuous flow of water craft.

JUMA architects were commissioned to add a covered outdoor area to an existing home. One existing volume was first removed to make room for a canopy that forms part of a much larger outdoor concept. Through the reduction of the number of supporting points, the canopy acquires a floating quality, creating an open corner that provides panoramic views of the surrounding lush greenery.? The long garden wall makes the existing house look bigger, partly because it is built with the same material as the house.
