Modern Green North House in Portland


One home in this three-unit condominium building, The North House, is for sale right now on Vancouver Avenue in Portland, Oregon. The undeniably modern building was designed by William Kaven Architecture and includes reclaimed fir, radiant heat, dual-flush toilets, on-demand hot water, passive heating and cooling, rainscreen siding, and a good location near Mississippi Avenue and Williams Avenue.


A year ago, the North House was a featured stop on the 11xDesign tour that received a lot of interest.  Indeed, it fit in well with a beautiful and contemporary combination of cool concrete, warm woods, and clean walls. 

The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom condo home has about 1,581 square-feet of space and is currently offered for sale at $449,900, if you're in the neighborhood and market.

      It is truly a pleasure to have buildings as well designed and constructed as this in Portland. It is even more exciting to have it in the neighborhood I myself live in! With beautiful lines, unusual attention to detail and significant green elements The North House is pointing in the direction of the future where ‘green’ is more than low VOC paint and energy efficient appliances, it is mindfulness of the longevity of a building; selection of durable materials, timeless design and detail. That is responsible design. That is a unique and worthy product. We will be seeing more of The North House on tours in Portland! (*Photos by Daniel Kaven*)
