Cannon Beach Residence

This award-winning home in Cannon Beach, Oregon takes advantage of excellent ocean views and southern solar exposure. The client’s goal was for a home that would last for multiple generations and capture their love of materials and forms found in nature. Designed to generate as much energy as it consumes on an annual basis, the home is pursuing the goal of being a “net-zero-energy” residence.

The environmentally responsive design promotes a healthy indoor environment, saves energy with an energy-efficient envelope, and utilized recycled and salvaged materials in its construction. Completed before the launch of the LEED of Homes green building rating system, the Cannon Beach Residence received the Earth Advantage certification at the Platinum level with the highest number of points awarded to a green home.

The design of the Cannon Beach Residence has resonated with design award jurors and the media. Awards have included “Custom Green of the Year” by the National Association of Home Builders, “Western Home Award” by Sunset magazine, “Home of the Year” by Spaces magazine, winner of Environmental Design + Construction’s “Excellence in Residential Design” award, “Honor Design Award” by the Salem Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the “People’s Choice Award” by the Portland Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The home has been published in Time magazine, Fine Homebuilding, Sunset magazine, Solar Today, Alaska and Horizon Airlines’ in-flight magazines, Coast Style, Trends, Spaces, Environmental Design + Construction and included in four books on sustainable design.
