Located in Portland’s Mount Tabor, the Ash + Ash house, designed by architects Hennebery Eddy, combines contemporary architecture with modern design with eco-friendly features. The building is composed of white stucco planes with glass and cedar infill panels that float above a dark brick base. Great outdoor terrace with a private pool and porches for use at different times of the day and in different weather finish the way of versatile living and enjoying both indoors and outdoors. Rift cut white oak used extensively throughout the interior is complemented by a cantilevered walnut stair to the rooftop viewbox and terrace. Key features of this LEED Platinum home include a geo-exchange heat pump system, under-floor radiant heating, triple glazing, exterior blinds, a rainwater recovery system, a 10 KW photovoltaic array, solar pool heat and an awesome on-site storm water disposal system. A great overall!
