Beautiful midcentury dream house renovation on a wooded site in Oregon

Risa Boyer Architecture in collaboration with Hammer and Hand is responsible for this midcentury modern house renovation located on a large wooded property in Portland, Oregon. The existing 1950’s home was remodeled from head to toe to become a modern family home while keeping a connection to its history.

The house was opened up to provide a better connection to the beautiful landscape. A 25-foot wide, pocketing sliding door creates an unobstructed opening from the living and dining room to a new covered patio and brick outdoor fireplace. Two new outbuildings were added under mature maple and pine trees to create a separate workshop and a guest house.

What We Love: This midcentury house renovation is nestled on a rare, woodsy property in the city that focuses on indoor-outdoor living. The project team did a wonderful job of improving this home’s connection to nature and the overall flow of the dwelling. Walls were removed to install an abundance of glazing along with a skylight to enhance natural light while connecting interior living spaces to the yard.

Tell Us: What do you think of the overall aesthetics of this renovation project? If this were your home, would you change any details in the design? Let us know in the Comments!

Above: To create an expansive covered patio area, the roofline was extended at the back of the dwelling. The new patio is accessible through a 25-foot long glass door that pockets into the wall, enabling a seamless flow from indoors to outdoors.

In the backyard, two additional structures were added, connecting to the main residence via the landscape design by Lilyvilla Gardens. One of the structures entails a 485 square foot guest house, while the other is a 375 square foot bicycle workshop. Both structures have the same exterior siding as the main residence: rough-sawn tongue-and-groove cedar.
