SE Portland, Oregon | 2012
This special ADU project is a great example of how to provide more utility and density into existing Portland neighborhoods, rather than tearing down our historic fabric. In it's attention to scale and design details, the project nestles perfectly into it's surroundings. The design combines a ground level wood working shop with an upper level home, while the form and details almost exactly match the existing 1890's primary home. This ADU has provided this family with more options for adding more family to their site, living in place, and providing more income going into the future. All while meeting present needs to work with wood in the new shop.
