LATERAL LOOKOUT

Portland, Oregon

2020 Oregon Home Structure + Style Award Winner for Build: Single-Family Home Detached $1,500,000 – $1,999,999

After years of searching for prospective lots that fit their ideal location and budget, the couple found the perfect site for their custom home in the Southwest Portland neighborhood they had grown to love. The Northwest Contemporary one-level features a show-stopping kitchen, two outdoor entertaining spaces, and complex design details.

Challenges

  • Building on this infill home site was challenging (steep slope, wetlands, and city-mandated stormwater facilities)
  • Clients wanted a big wall of glass and to use a commercial product, but it was not in budget
  • Milcore trim detail at windows
  • The homeowners love to cook and wanted many zones – coffee bar, butler pantry, open entertaining space, and wine bar
  • Incorporating design elements that intersect, are asymmetrical, floating, or inset

Solutions

  • Home design is favorable to the lot
  • Unwound many layers with geotechnical and engineering professionals to make sure this lot was buildable
  • Created the window look with budget-friendly vinyl product
  • Stole closet space from the workout room and pushed it in to create a wine bar perfect for entertaining
  • Repurposed an important dining table to be used as the kitchen island
