Beautiful Houses: Skyline Residence
- Aug 22, 2014
Today we will show you the amazing Skyline residence in Portland, Oregon, a project by Nathan Good Architects. This house is really beautiful and elegant. The house uses natural materials and generates as much energy as it consumes, which is great. Materials, shapes, colors, layout and natural light create a modern and cozy environment. Certainly a great place to live.
Make sure to check out Nathan Good Architects website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week :)
Description from the architects: Nestled in the hills just to the west of Portland, this elegant home for a family of five is a good example of blending environmental building performance with aesthetics. Our clients requested an abundance of natural light, views from throughout the home to the yard to the south, uncompromised indoor air quality, the use of natural materials, and a home that would generate as much energy as it consumes on an annual basis. The home has achieved a LEED for Homes Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council. Quality craftsmanship is evident throughout from the interior finishes to the steel and wood stair railing.
We found this house at Contemporist.
