Bend, OR (PRWEB) June 19, 2006
Local homebuilder Abacus GC has planted the seeds of Lux Eco-Modern Homes(tm) here, with construction well underway on its first development, the Newport District Modern House Project.
Inspired by the clean lines of Mid-Century Modern architecture, these five unique dwellings organically blend metal, wood, glass and stone to create a community within the bustling Newport neighborhood on the Westside of outdoor recreation mecca Bend, Oregon.
At the Newport District Modern House Project, green means luxury. It's about getting the utmost from every amenity and feature. Like heated towel racks that both warm the bathroom and completely dry towels between uses to reduce laundry needs.
Every material is carefully selected to minimize consumption, toxins and waste while maximizing energy efficiency and creature comforts. From sustainably harvested forest products to solar panels that reduce electrical needs, these homes are designed to be healthy for the lucky people who live in them - and for the planet.
Homeowners can cross the street to shop at gourmet and natural foods markets, walk to downtown restaurants, art galleries and theaters or take in an open-air concert in nearby Drake Park - then come home to an environment that feels like slipping into a silk robe.
