Sleek, Modern Luxury: Nichiha Gives Us A Sneak Peek Into Their Featured Home In The Portland Modern Home Tour

This home is modern by definition, starting with the exterior. From the parapet walls and façade design to the simple flow of the floor plan, the Tishenko residence stands out as exemplary in the Modern Home space. As sleek as it is luxurious, we are proud to feature 722 NW Valley Street in our curated collection of 2017 tour homes. This 4,200 sqft home is located in Camas, WA, just a short drive from Downtown Portland. The modern project was completed in 2014, and handsomely decked in sleek Nichiha fiber cement siding. This modern dwelling was brought to our editors’ attention by our partners at Nichiha, and is now their featured home in the Portland MA+DS Modern Home Tour 2017.

Greeting the world with color, the home stands out on the sloped street with its bright turquoise door and whimsical landscaping. The placement of the home on this lot, meanwhile, provides for an intriguing, multi-level facade that perfectly frames the uber-modern cement siding, provided by our partners at Nichiha.

The exterior basis of design including the warmth of wood resulted in a conundrum: how to achieve the look of high end stained wood cladding without the drawbacks? There are not many options in the siding world between commodity sheets goods and lap siding and cost-prohibitive resin or aluminum panel systems. Solution: make Nichiha Vintage Wood fiber cement panels the focal point from the curb and surround with solid neutral color fiber cement sheet goods. Along with other materials used on this beautiful project, Nichiha’s cladding is engineered to offer homeowners jaw-dropping curb appeal without fade and discoloration and the back-breaking maintenance issues inherent with wood.

As for its interiors, the luxury modern home features dreamy, smooth finishes throughout, including modern, tall glass windows, rich hardwoods, pristine white walls, as well as deeply relaxing spaces of zen. The home also features a state-of-the-art kitchen and even its own sauna. Tour goers will appreciate the well-conceived floor plan and modern surfaces, finishes and tones. According to the project developers, its success rested on attention to detail and a perfect combination of expertise, vision and modern styling. “This home is sleek, elegant and unique – creating a true statement. While the designs emulates current trends, it’s also guaranteed to stand the test of time,” added Vito Tishenko from Modern NW.

The builder, Modern Northwest, is a locally owned custom home builder in the Portland, Vancouver and surrounding areas. They specialize in the design and construction of luxury custom homes for today’s modern lifestyle. When it came time to select the materials, Tishenko knew a modern panel with a closed rainscreen would be the best performing wall assembly possible for the modern home’s design. Outcome: Vintage Wood has been used by Modern Northwest to differentiate in a market where traditional wood still dominates. Nichiha Vintage Wood panels come in seven colors, all 18”x10’ sizes that attach horizontally or vertically with a hidden fastener rainscreen clip system.

Since value was as much a consideration as quality and design for the owners, this Camas home is worth the drive to get ideas for modern home remodels or new builds! Enjoy this short virtual tour we’ve prepared in anticipation for our upcoming visit to the City of Roses and if you’re in the area, make sure to stop by and see it for yourself!
