We’ve been hired to furnish a recently renovated modern brownstone in the Ft Green neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. The young clients are artistic and love to travel and have requested bold interiors that feel eclectic. We’re running with the request and designing without pulling in the reigns too much. We’re excited to see how this project progresses as it’s an exciting departure from our usual aesthetic.
Lake Front House
We are collaborating with TVA Architects on large remodel of this historic lodge home on an acre lot on Lake Oswego. The home was designed by Edward Green as a summer retreat in the early 1930s. Before the lot was subdivided it hosted a mini golf course, pond and separate kid’s hang out building. A master suite addition, full kitchen and dining room remodel and enlarging both the footprint and ceiling height of the living room are all part of the early design concepts.
We are remodeling the tiny historic Sellwood Library into a playful, slightly unconventional residence that will respect and celebrate the history of the building while serving the needs of the new owner.
Mount Tabor Tudor
We are doing a complete interior remodel of this lovely turn-of-the-century tudor house that sits on a full acre of beautifully landscaped gardens adjacent to Portland’s Mount Tabor park. Our work includes a full kitchen remodel and remodels of the existing baths, as well as new furniture and lighting throughout.
Parliament Design’s current office received lots of attention for its bold and innovative design. We feel fortunate to team up with Parliament and LSW Architects’ Casey Wycoff on the design of this creative company’s new space in downtown Portland. The new location, a completely gutted, turn-of-the-century brick building, offers heaps of potential. Ideas generated in the schematic design phase include a roof garden, a skylit atrium, and wall treatments incorporating preserved layers of existing wallpaper.
Saul Zaik House
This project is a thoughtful remodel of a historic midcentury house in SW Portland. The Feldman house was designed by Saul Zaik in 1957, and in that year it won an AIA Merit Award. He later designed a bedroom wing addition to the house. Our goal will be to modernize the functionality of the house for a young family of four without compromising Zaik’s original vision and design.
SW Portland Home
We are doing a complete interior remodel and small addition of this lovely old Portland home, as well as turning the attic and basement into finished living space. We’re resurfacing the exterior, adding a portico at the front facade, and adding new windows throughout. We’re excited for the opportunity to think this project through from the exterior all the way down to the furniture, lighting and details.
Trout Lake House
We are working on an interior reconfiguration of a log cabin, built in the 1950s and later expanded in the 1970s with a more modern addition. Our goal is to create a layout with better circulation, storage and flexibility for a growing family. We are also designing the guest quarters on the second story of an out building and the surrounding grounds, which will be landscaped for a more harmonious orientation with the circular drive and sweeping views.
Walla Walla Home
A modern new construction home in Walla Walla, WA. The site is an 80-acre site which faces the Blue Mountains to the east, the Columbia Gorge to the south and west, and a creek to the north. The initial architecture was done by Yianni Doulis Architecture Studio and we’ve joined the project to bring life to the interiors by looking at cabinetry, materials and lighting. The clients have a clean modern aesthetic and prefer things to be industrial in detailing. We’re creating cohesion between the exterior and interior by keeping the palette simple, emphasizing asymmetry, and using the lighting to highlight the interesting architecture.
Wild Goose Farm House
The follow up to Tiny House, Jessica and her husband, architect Yianni Doulis are in the process of building a less tiny house which will give their family room to grow and spread out as kids get older. The house is generally simple and restrained, in the style of a shaker farm house but with some surprising and lovely details.
Our first project in wine country is a 3300-square-foot tasting room in Yamhill. We’re working closely with 2Form Architecture from Eugene to create interiors that blend seamlessly with their design, carrying many of the exterior materials inside and allowing the building to speak for itself. Features include concrete floors, wood plank ceilings, floor to ceiling expanses of glass, a small gallery space for rotating art exhibits, and continuous indoor-outdoor space for private functions. Much of the wood being used will come from an old milking barn that recently stood on the property. And a large pond and restorative garden, created by Kurisu International, will hug the building, offering many places for enjoying a glass of wine.
We recently started remodeling a kitchen in the historic Alhambra Condominiums in Northwest Portland. Built in 1926, the building was designed by architect Otis Josselyn Fitch and showcases a unique expression of the Mediterranean style. It is made entirely of board form concrete with wrought iron ornamentation and industrial, multi-pane steel windows. The new kitchen will feature a palette of white plaster, dark gray cabinets, warm walnut furniture and our favorite encaustic floor tiles, custom colored in a modern geometric pattern.
We’ve recently started working on a large home situated on a beautiful lake in Alaska. The client has asked us to update the furnishings for several rooms to align with her more modern aesthetic. This will include modifying the color palette and providing new lighting to create a fresh yet relaxed environment for her and her family.
