Architecture Wednesday: A Renovation In Portland

We’ve been seeing a lot of renovations, turning soap factories and garages into fabulous homes, first in Amsterdam, then New York City, and now out to Portland, Oregon.

This unique home is created from an old structure that intermingled three buildings from different time periods over the last century. Emerick Architects reused the original structure, and then added a penthouse and a roof garden creating an urban oasis and a highly energy-efficient home.

With some 2000 square feet of solar arrays, this home is practically off-the-grid. Marrying practicality with craftsmanship, almost everything for this project was handmade locally from raw materials by Portland artisans including cabinetry, steel work, railings, doors stairs, lighting fixtures, stucco and plaster.

It’s old, and new, and restructured and repurposed and reused and made from scratch, all at the same time.

Love this place. Nothing lights my fire more than a stack of logs.

I like it's "Industrial Chic" look.

I have seen this home featured before and LOVED IT! How great is the fireplace with the cubies for the wood!?! Not only functional, but adds to the atmosphere. Of course this is probably my most favorite kitchen I've ever seen. I also love how they have the home styled, how great is the living room furniture?
