The owners of Ankeny Row Zero are retiring couples with a strong desire to age in place in the heart of the city while minimizing their living expenses and environmental footprint. Designed and built by Portland-based Green Hammer, Ankeny Row consists of five two-story townhouses, one loft and one common studio surrounding a courtyard. The common courtyard is designed in relation to the townhouses to afford ample private, semi-private, and public outdoor rooms offering a full gradient of social experience.

The siting of homes maximizes light, energy efficiency, renewable energy generation and connection while balancing privacy and orientation to the community. The townhouses are contemporary and yet pay homage to the great craftsman tradition of the Buckman neighborhood. Many of the homeowners worked with 2Yoke Design on their interior design. The open floor plans encourage informal gatherings centered around the dining and kitchen areas. First-story master suites allow the owners to live entirely on the first floor if desired or needed.

A small rooftop solar photovoltaic panel is expected to produce enough electricity to allow Ankeny Row to achieve Net Zero certification through either Earth Advantages Net Zero or the Living Building Challenge’s Net Zero Energy Building (NZEB) certification.
