Local Building Featured in 2023 Northwest Green Home Tour

The 2023 Northwest Green Home Tour features two projects from Montavilla’s low-carbon designer Harka Architecture, with one of their featured projects located within the neighborhood at 7631 NE Glisan Street. Ticket holders will have an opportunity to view the environmentally friendly transformation of Harka’s headquarters, learning about all the innovative techniques that went into the 577-square-foot Art Deco structure’s remodel.

For 30 years, the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild has represented a community of professionals committed to ecological building in the Pacific Northwest. The Northwest Green Home Tour allows the interested public to learn about sustainable building practices from the people and businesses that support it. The 2023 tour will take place on April 29th from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This year’s event features green building approaches that reduce energy usage, lowering a building’s carbon footprint and reducing operating costs for its owner. The featured structures boast a variety of green building certifications, including Passive House, Built Green, and Net-Zero.

The seventeen tour locations are spread over the Pacific Northwest. However, people can selectively visit the locations that appeal to their interests. In addition to Harka Architecture’s Glisan Street location, the tour features another of their creations, Mason Studios. That Cully neighborhood development added two new residences and a large shop on a property with three existing homes. Tickets are available on the Northwest Green Home Tour website. People can register for free or choose to donate funds at several levels. This upcoming event is an excellent opportunity to visit an iconic Montavilla building and learn about its low-carbon renovation.
