High in the West Hills of Portland, the Panorama Residence overlooks many of the area's most prominent landmarks: Downtown, the Willamette River, Mount Hood, and the Cascade Mountains. KLA's design of the site focuses views to the grandeur beyond while maintaining a unique sense of privacy for the homeowners.


The landscape at the Panorama Residence falls dramatically from west to east, with grades dropping almost 70 feet from the property line  at the street front to the back of the lot. Complementing the views of the landscape beyond are ornamental and native plantings which create sense of place and soften the edges created by new retaining walls as the site steps down slope. Landscape features include a custom swimming pool and spa, as well as two fire pits which emphasize the panoramic view of the Portland landscape.


Progressing quickly thanks to a well detailed design and built by a thorough and dedicated team of contractors, KLA expects the Panorama Garden to be complete in Spring 2018.
