Northeast Residence


TYPE Rennovation
LOCATION Portland, Oregon
STATUS Completed 2020
SIZE 2,300 SF
RECOGNITION Archello.com


Constructed in the 1960s, home is unique for the Portland area and feels decidedly more Palm Springs than PNW. The home largely avoided any detrimental renovations over the years and proved to be a time capsule with many original details intact, including the kitchen and bathrooms. This was beneficial for several reasons; it allowed for clear design direction for any changes and provided a clear design reference for the renovation. It was decided early on in the planning phase to honor the history and original architecture of this home and treat it primarily as a restoration project.

This home underwent a variety of updates, including restoration of the exterior, renovation of every interior space and a new landscape scheme. In the kitchen, cluttered soffits were removed and a larger opening to the dining room was introduced. The layout of the kitchen was reworked using the existing square footage allowing the space to function more generously without removing any walls. In the bathrooms, original casework was restored and showers and sink areas were refreshed with new tile, plumbing and surfaces. Original hardwood floors were repaired and refinished throughout, All spaces received new paint and original wood details, including trim and woodwork, were carefully restored.
