Wildwood by Giulietti Schouten Architects
Set on top of a forested ridge separating downtown Portland and the suburban sprawl of Beaverton, OR, Wildwood is a rural retreat and primary residence hidden within the metro area of the Pacific Northwest.
Wildwood: A Serene Portland Hideaway
Wildwood, nestled atop a ridge between Portland and Beaverton, OR, offers a secluded retreat in the Pacific Northwest. This primary residence caters to clients who work nearby and prefer a modern home with clean lines. Set on a 1.2-acre (about 51,836 square feet) forested site, it’s designed for year-round outdoor living and comfort in the cool northwest climate, with plenty of natural light and views of the forest.
Blending Home with Nature
Access to Wildwood comes through a shared private road, leading to a small clearing among protected trees. The house’s design is a long, open plan, oriented north-south, with living areas facing a 35-acre forest reserve.
The house features a two-story central hearth, separating the living room from the master suite. At the southern end, a quiet study offers a tranquil space with selective forest views.
Modern Living in Harmony with the Forest
Wildwood stands as a testament to modern living in harmony with nature. Its design marries the comforts of modern living with the serene, forested landscape of the area, creating a tranquil and connected living space.
