In 2015 have fully redesigned a mid-century house, built in 1957. Currently this mid-century modern home built to a 1-acre lot in SW Portland includes a stunning view to the river and SE Portland. It had a guest house that had a more operational floor program. So, two bedrooms have been added into a upper-level addition, and a guest home currently comprises 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and kitchenette and additionally anentertaining space. Including a principal level addition to the present U-shaped plan left small choices with the home's place on a steep hillside. Second level addition was be hard from a designers standpoint because the first home had reduced slick roof lines with big, thin gables. In the long run, designers kept the first look whilst forming a second-level inclusion in the present volume. Since Giulietty Schouten Architects state on their site:"In finding a concentric top layer floor plan, we could decrease the scale of this inclusion whilst yanking the outside wall inward, centering the town views. The effect is a sizable, modern dormer, using a low crossing roof which opens to an wonderful perspective of Portland."
