This fabulous Northwest contemporary home was designed by Mountainwood Homes, located in a Southwest Portland neighborhood, Oregon. The couple had searched for years for prospective lots that fit their ideal location and budget, discovering the great site for their custom home in a neighborhood they had grown to love. Spread out over one level, this fantastic home features a show-stopping kitchen, two outdoor entertaining spaces, and complex design details.
- Building on this infill home site was challenging (steep slope, wetlands, and city-mandated stormwater facilities)
- Owners desired a large wall of glass and to use a commercial product, but it was not in budget
- Milcore trim detail at windows
- The homeowners love to cook and requested several zones – coffee bar, butler pantry, open entertaining space, and wine bar
- Incorporating design elements that intersect, are asymmetrical, floating, or inset
- Home design is favorable to the lot
- Unwound many layers with geotechnical and engineering professionals to make sure this lot was buildable
- Created the window look with budget-friendly vinyl product
- Stole closet space from the workout room and pushed it in to create a wine bar great for entertaining
- Repurposed an important dining table to be used as the kitchen island
What We Love: This Northwest contemporary home highlights fantastic details, including large windows, stylish furnishings and accessories and an abundance of warmth. The project team did a fabulous job of selecting a material palette that evokes a modern, organic feel, with clean lines and a harmonious flow. Overall, this luminous home is very idyllic for day-to-day living with its tranquil, forested views.
