We were approached by a developer earlier this year to design the interior of the first of three homes for a new, small development in the Montavilla neighborhood of Portland, OR. To our delight, the project also included an attached two-bedroom ADU behind the main house. (If you aren’t sure what an ADU is, check this out.)
The Montavilla neighborhood has all the keep-Portland-weird vibes you’d hope for and hosts some of the city’s best eats. While the main house is just blocks from the center of it all, it’s also situated on a busy one-way street often used for commuting. With that in mind, we created a space that has all the Pacific Northwest vibes a buyer could ask for – moody green kitchen cabinets, natural wood details throughout, black faucets, and a host of windows to let in as much natural light as possible.
