The clients, a married couple with no children relocating from Seattle, desired an affordable home with a compact and efficient floor plan, a clean unassuming modern aesthetic, and a location with easy access to downtown Portland.
The 1900 SF house was sited on a vacant 50′ x 100′ corner lot, 5 miles west of Portland. A modern composition of wood screen walls and composite wood veneer panels give the home a warm, inviting yet modern feel. The series of wood screen walls also provide privacy to the interior living spaces as well as the outdoor deck and patio spaces. The living room windows and clerestories take advantage of the southern light, while the simple shed roofs complement the modern aesthetic and provide protection from the rainy climate.
