Origami is a community of homes folded into one unifying complex in the Piedmont Neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. The homes have a streamlined design aesthetic and are built with craftsmanship— a balance of artistry and functionality. Pleat homes are 3-bedroom townhomes with two-and-a-half baths. A generously sized en suite bedroom occupies the entire top floor with territorial views and voluminous vaulted ceilings. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the home let in an abundance of natural light. The ground floor living spaces flow directly into a large private walled courtyard. Pleat homes are also equipped with a tankless water heater, outdoor storage, and an enclosed parking pad which can also function as an outdoor garden room. The homes have superior sound insulation in both the walls and windows for more-quiet living space.  Sustainability and positive environmental impact are core goals of the Origami project and the homes have achieved Earth Advantage Platinum building certification - the highest level awarded by Earth Advantage. The third-party designation is awarded to buildings that exceed code for energy and water efficiency, incorporate high-performance features, and are designed for better indoor air quality. Homes are aiming to be 30% more energy efficient than a code required building. 3 homes available: 7176 N Vancouver Ave. $599,000 3 bed | 2.5 bath | 1507 sqft RMLS #19081799 7168​ N Vancouver Ave. $599,000 3 bed | 2.5 bath | 1509 sqft RMLS #19295421 7184​ N Vancouver Ave. $599,000 3 bed | 2.5 bath | 1509 sqft RMLS #19574271 Follow this link for a virtual tour!
