When two of your best buds ask for help with their new ADU (accessory dwelling unit) and the brief is simply “fun” – you do it. Our goal with this design was to playfully mash together Palm Springs vibes with mid century touches and a whole lot of – you guessed it – fun. When designing an Airbnb rental in Portland, we strive to create a unique space that cuts through the clutter of the short-term-rental market. We love everything about how this place came together, but the coolest part of this ADU is hands-down the custom mural created by Nia Musiba, a local artist and designer. She brought the pièce de résistance that tied everything together. We can’t wait to see The Donna ADU (named after the client’s perfect fur baby) hit Airbnb in 2021!
