Under Construction: Oceanside Beach House, Oregon Coast


The Oceanside Beach House is located only 1,000 feet from the Pacific Ocean on the Oregon coast. Designed by architect Jeff Stern in close collaboration with the homeowners, the home is a modern interpretation of a traditional Oregon beach house.

"We were looking for cost effective windows and doors that were suitable for the harsh coastal environment," says Jeff. "After seeing the Innotech products at the Z-haus in Portland, we felt the Innotech windows with the tilt and turn operation suited both the design of the house and the owners' lifestyle much better than other types of windows more commonly available. The substantial profile and the ability to do a very large Tilt + Slide Door were also very appealing."

 

The wedge shaped design of the home was inspired by the triangular site and built to maximize the spectacular panoramic views from all angles. The interior of the home features a gently sloping ceiling and carefully placed openings to maximize the views and track the path of the sun throughout the day.
