The Oaks Zero-Energy Neighborhood

Rose Villa partnered with Portland, Oregon, design-build firm Green Hammer to envision and build the Pacific Northwest’s first ever zero-energy senior living neighborhood. This neighborhood is ideal for people who seek a living option that matches their sustainable ideals, and for those who value the notion that how we live impacts our neighbors, community, and the planet. Each residence is built to Passive House standards, a designation that signifies that the homes produce enough energy to offset their energy use over the course of a year. Four two-bed, two-bath triplexes surround a shared central courtyard that features two native White Oak trees, which were the inspiration for the neighborhood’s identity. The solar panels, super-tight building envelope, triple-pane tilt-open windows, and high energy-efficient appliances are unique to The Oaks.
