Award for interior addition in NW Portland.“What can we do to make the living room more cozy?” asked the NW Portland homeowner during the first meeting.

PROBLEMS: The original living room was two stories tall, with large windows on top of each other. The original fireplace was out of proportion and scale with the all-white room.

CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: A new walk-in master closet was added into the existing attic space, and the original master closet was converted to a hallway. A private mezzanine-den was added for the couple above the living room. Problem solved! A new fireplace and stone surround were installed, flanked by custom bookshelf-display cabinets. The carpet was replaced with hardwood flooring, and the colors were changed to a deep, warm palette. When completed, the couple decided that a typical living room didn’t fit their lifestyle. They converted the living room into a billiard room! This project won a national award for best use of interior space.
