New House – NE Alberta Neighborhood

A new infill house in Portlland's vibrant Alberta Arts district, co-designed with L. Christian Eberle, AIA.

Designed to fit on an exceptionally narrow lot, the main living spaces are raised off the street level for garage access. This also gives the living spaces large front windows & daylight while still maintaining a sense of privacy from the street. The house fits within the context of nearby traditional homes, but with a few contemporary twists in the detailing and materials palette. Fir boards from a derelict garage on-site were reused both inside and outside the home.
