Located in the secluded SW hills of Portland, this unique 2-story home with finished daylight basement, contains 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms,
as well as a semi-detached 2 car garage connected to the main house via a covered breezeway. The design engaged the existing site topography to minimize excavation and to capture space for the daylight basement which connects living space to the outdoor environment. The main level is situated within a few steps of final grades and incorporates an open floor plan where the kitchen, living and dining space all share a common volume with clear spans and minimal exposed framing. The living space volume is magnified by a double height vaulted ceiling overlooked by the corridor to the upstairs bedrooms.
