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.

The Strand is a commercial and residential waterfront condominium located in Winnipeg, Manitoba on the shores of the Red River. Designed and developed by Friesen Tokar Architects, leaders in sustainable design, The Strand was recognized by Manitoba Hydro for its excellent energy efficiency and awarded a significant rebate.
“I wanted The Strand to have tilt and turn style windows,” said Rudy Friesen, architect and developer for The Strand. “But I also wanted windows that would be suitable for Manitoba’s very cold and windy winters. After meeting with the Innotech team, there was no question that their Tilt + Turn product had the energy and durability performance features we required for The Strand.”
