SE Portland Addition & Remodel / with Green Gables Design
Designer, 2015 - 2016
Portland, OR



The Southeast Portland Addition & Remodel was a project completed as a designer with Green Gables Design and Restoration. The existing home was a simple, 1950’s ranch in a great inner Southeast Portland neighborhood. The clients were a young family looking to renovate their existing home, add additional program to entertain and a second story master suite.

The form of the second story addition recalls a traditional residential gable and provides an expansive, vaulted interior space. Site-built transom windows allow natural light to illuminate both ends of the second floor volume, providing a bright and airy master bath suite and bedroom.


On the main floor, the kitchen was rearranged to include a large sliding door connection to a well-established backyard garden. The existing garage was reconstructed to accommodate structural load from the upstairs addition and to allow ample natural light through translucent garage door panels.
