Trillium Townhomes will be Green Hammer’s second Zero Energy project in the Rose Villa senior community. After completing The Oaks, Green Hammer began design on Trillium – six industrial-inspired multifamily row homes – all sustainably designed for independent living. The community is located within Rose Villa’s pedestrian-oriented campus, with each home opening to a permaculture-inspired courtyard of edible and native plants and accessible pathways. The architectural aesthetic is inspired by the converted industrial buildings and rowhomes in nearby Portland’s Pearl District, also located along the Willamette River. The exteriors are brick-clad with metal awnings above private outdoor balconies, and each interior boasts double-height, light-filled great rooms with an ‘urban loft’ feel. Bedrooms on both floors of the home and accessible bathrooms provide optimal flexibility for aging in place. Green Hammer will break ground in the fall of 2020.
