ORIGAMI

Crafted for balance

Origami is a community of homes folded into one unifying complex in the Piedmont Neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. The homes have a streamlined design aesthetic and are built with craftsmanship— a balance of artistry and functionality.

The homes at Origami find a new balance between the individual and the whole. The design concept harkens back to the process of origami, in which a single sheet of paper can be manipulated through folding to produce more complex figures producing elements of light and shadow.

Flexible living options

Floorplans

 

Origami homes are open and light-filled with vaulted ceilings. The homes are arranged around a central open space inspired by the classic European courtyard; this ensures that each home is flooded with light, air, and greenery.
