Project Name: 
Casa Nera
Building Type: 
Single Family Residential
Location: 
Portland, OR

Casa Nera is a dramatic modern home located in Portland, Oregon. Created by visionary home designer and builder Chirstopher Gelber, Casa Nera is a 3-storey, 4,000 square foot home located on a peaceful wooded hillside. 

 

"I wanted to make a bold house, almost intimidating but warm, even sensual on the inside, and very much not woodsy and Portlandy," says Christopher. 

 

Charcoal black exterior and painted black interior Innotech Tilt + Turn Windows, Terrace Swing Doors and Tilt and Turn Doors were selected to complement the home's bold, dark colours on the outside and inside. Featuring a host of other sustainable building technologies, from extensive insulation (R-25 walls and R-40 roof), high-efficiency heating and cooling system, to tankless toilets, and top-of-the-line interior finishing, including quarter-sawn Walnut wood flooring, elegant Italian marble and custom-etche bronze hand rails on the staircase, Casa Nera is a truly spectacular home.
