“[My generation of architects] were all World War II veterans, and we were out to change the idea of architecture,” Zaik told Dwell in 2015. “We were really just building boxes with a bunch of windows, but experimenting with how you integrated indoor and outdoor spaces.”

It comes with wood vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and a plethora of outdoor spaces, the listing says.

“Zaik made many site visits with the owners to place the home in the perfect spot on their gently sloped, forested lot,” said listing agent Marisa Swenson to Dwell.

Zaik, who died in 2020, is responsible for many of the area’s architectural masterpieces, like the Feldman House, the prefabricated 1-A House, the Fort House and the Bigley House, Portland Architecture reported.
