Twilight Cullen's House


Everyone knew about the famous family of vampire, the Cullens. The story of the movie Twilight is about a human (Isabella Swan, "Kristen Stewart") and a vampire (Edward Cullen, "Robert Pattinson") fell in love to each other

The Cullen's real estate is located in Portland, Oregon, it sits on 4300 square feet, built by Metcalf Construction, with Lucy Metcalf as the interior designer and landscaper. The house was designed for Nike executive John Hoke and his family and appeared in the film Twilight.  Hoke really liked the idea of his house being used as the home to a family of sophisticated vampires and allowed filming to proceed in both the interiors and exteriors.

Some of the furniture in the Cullen home is antique and it is mixed with modern architecture. There is also a lot of Asian accent pieces elegantly placed above bookcases. Do you know what the Native American wooden thing is called that Bella picked up? Its in the deleted scenes.

The Twilight house also featured a dreamy look with glass doors and excellent forest views.

The Hoke House was designed by architect Jeff Kovel. Kovel grew up just outside of New York City and lived there until he attended Cornell University's Architecture school. Since then he has made his way to the West Coast and in 1996 he finally settled down in Portland, Oregon. However, it was while growing up in New York that Jeff realised he wished to become an architect. His family had begun work on a new home and a young Jeff thus developed a new fascination for both building and design.
