House WF

Client: Private

Location: Portland, OR

Type: Residential Renovation and Addition

OFFICE 52 Architectures design for the renovation and expansion of this Portland bungalow called for the complete renovation of the second floor to provide two new bedrooms, a new bath, and a master suite.  On the ground floor, the kitchen would be significantly expanded and a home office would be added.  The existing main stair would be rebuilt with added skylights to help open the center of the house and improve connection between the first and second floors.

These alterations would be accommodated by carefully raising the roof line in both the front and back and by expanding the home’s footprint slightly into the back yard.  A new partially covered deck off the expanded kitchen would increase opportunities for outdoor dining and activities in good weather.  The design maintains the strong craftsman character of the existing house with a slightly modern touch.
