2021 Portland Modern Home Tour is virtual: See sustainable, energy- and space-saving ideas

Not all home tours have returned to in-person viewing, but seeing smartly designed, energy-efficient houses virtually still allows you to take note of everything that captures your attention. The five dwellings spotlighted in 3D filming for the Portland Modern Home Tour on Saturday, July 24, are exemplars of sustainable building and decor trends.

Two dwellings were created to exacting “passive house” standards, which means they can use 80 to 90 percent less energy for heating and cooling, and an 800-square-foot home and 600-square-foot studio show off space-saving techniques.

A Lake Oswego custom house has soundproof hobby rooms reached by a secret door and a slide into the gym and indoor futsal court.

Ticket holders ($40 at mads.media) will follow along as Portland-area architects, designers and homeowners guide them through the livestream event and answer questions on the spot.
