Garthwick Modern

Location: Portland, Oregon

This project strips an existing nondescript 1940’s house down to the studs and completely rebuilds it into a beautiful, modern home.

The hipped roof is removed on both the house and garage and replaced with a flat roof. The house receives both an addition at the back and a second story addition on top. A window wall of glass defines the first floor while the second floor hovers above. A full width porch faces the street, connecting the interior to the exterior and presenting a friendly facade to the street.

The interior features hardwood floors, clean white walls, quartz countertops, laminate cabinets, ceramic tile, and LED lighting.

The exterior features large glazed openings, board & batten siding with black metal accents, and simple geometric lines.
