NP House

This renovation in NE Portland transformed a quadrant of a 1928 bungalow to create a new open kitchen and stair filled with daylight and connected to the outdoors. The project reconfigured the space by removing the existing basement stair from the corner of the kitchen and replacing it with a new skylit central stair linking all three levels of the home. This opened up the perimeter of the house to the yard and created a light-filled kitchen that is both elegant and efficient. A new deck extends the space of the kitchen through glass sliding doors to overlook a backyard patio and garden.

A wood screen wall opens the side of the stair to the kitchen, taking advantage of an existing skylight above to bring daylight down into the heart of the house.
