The Wilkinson House by Robert Oshatz, completed in 2004, is an example of modern architecture at peace with its site. The Wilkinson Residence is difficult to find. Located in the heavily wooded hills that surround the commercial heart of Portland.
The exterior of the house is a series of horizontal layers featuring copper, cedar shingles, and a copper metal roof.
The design uses a natural wood ceiling that floats on curving laminated wood and passes through glass walls which wraps around the main living room.
Private spaces such as bedrooms and bathrooms are located downstairs while the upper floor of the home accommodates the more public functions of the home.
