Location: Portland, Oregon
This project involves gutting two floors of a1940’s split level to create a more open, light-filled home.
By flipping the location of the kitchen and dining room, knocking down the wall between the two, and adding a small addition, a larger, more efficient and open eating and prep space is created. A large sliding glass door will both visually and physically connect the interior living space with the backyard. The kitchen will feature a central island with seating space for three and a full wall of cabinets with a built-in buffet counter.
Overhead lighting will be added to all of the existing living spaces. The fireplace will receive a full makeover and feature blue brick tile with a blackened steel surround. The opening to the basement staircase will be widened to create a better connection to the lower level and the entry hall guardrail will be replaced with a design more fitting with the style of the home.
Construction is scheduled to begin in February 2017.
