Northwest Sustainable Properties found and developed the property for this private home in Portland’s West Hills. The large split-level project is a truly unique private development — spacious, modern, locally-sourced, and environmentally friendly.
The owners wanted to include various sustainable elements and source high-quality, long-lasting materials in this ground-up dwelling. The resulting 5‑bedroom, 3.5‑bath custom eco residence features ceramic siding and energy-efficient systems to decrease the home’s carbon footprint. A green roof controls and treats stormwater, while also providing insulation and passive cooling to the home. Large, eastern-facing windows pull in natural lighting and boast panoramic views of both downtown Portland and the surrounding mountains.
