Brick Accessory Building
NE Portland, Oregon | 2011
This compact two-level structure accommodates a 400 square foot ground level workshop, garage, and kayak storage facility. The upper level provides space for an office with a small bathroom and kitchen. The design is oriented toward the street with an entry door, porch, and windows with overhead trellises, while the southern and western sides open with a second level deck towards a large annual garden. The location and scale of the project invited some review and appeal complexity with the city, which ended up leading to overall project improvements.
