Saul Zaik has been practicing architecture in Oregon since 1952 and is a master of the northwest regional style. His work includes residential buildings, the 1-A pre-fab house, resort condominiums, commercial buildings as well as additions to Timberline Lodge, National Park buildings at Crater Lake and overseeing the restoration of Vista House at Crown Point in the Columbia Gorge.
His homes are often unassuming from the street, but open and airy light-filled interiors demonstrate the genius of his designs and thoughtful site orientation that reflects his love and respect for the local landscape.
Take advantage of a unique opportunity to visit six outstanding Northwest Regional Modern homes designed by Saul Zaik. Tour goers will appreciate the beauty of these houses and the way they complement their wooded settings. All were recommended by Saul himself and his own home is included on the tour.
Check in at the beautiful Portland First United Methodist Church any time before 2pm where you will pick up your brochure and map. This is also the location for the 1pm lecture program on Saul Zaik and the Northwest Regional style, which is included in your ticket price. And scroll down for information on the post-tour Snappy Hour at Rejuvenation!
This will be a self-guided driving tour. The homes are in Portland's West Hills and there are some steep driveways and walkways. We will try to accomodate close parking for those who need it.

What is it that makes Oregon, OREGON? It’s not just our great outdoors. It’s also our historic homes and neighborhoods, bridges and barns, churches, monuments and storefronts.
Restore Oregon seeks to protect these resources and the tremendous energy, craftsmanship, and heritage they embody.
Historic preservation isn’t backward looking; it’s forward looking. The built environment is one of our most renewable resources and the rehabilitation and reuse of existing buildings is essential to a healthy environment.
We are all about maintaining livability, pedestrian scale, authenticity, distinctiveness, community connectedness, cultural roots, and not wasting what we have already paid for.
