West Hills Mid Century Modern

5 Bedroom
3 Full
3,179 SQ FT / living area
ARCHITECTS: STEVE BOCK, GSB DESIGN

After living in a renovation we performed at a North Portland Bungalow, our clients came to us needing a bigger home. They also wanted to move to the West Hills of Portland as it featured a school district they wanted their kids to be in. They embarked on a year-long search and found a beat-down mid-century rambler that needed a complete gut renovation.  They teamed up with Steve Bock from GS Bock Design, and after a few iterations, they came up with one of our most incredible transformations to date.

The original single-story home was uniquely set up in a U-shape with two distinct areas for sleeping. On one wing, there were three bedrooms and one bath, and on the opposite side of the home was a smaller wing with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom.

The renovation included turning the wing with three bedrooms into a sizable Primary suite and a large laundry. The smaller wing on the opposite end of the house resulted in renovating the two remaining bedrooms and a single bathroom that their daughters would share.

The home’s original main living area was a large vast open expanse with a fireplace. The kitchen flanked the space but was small and walled off from the living space. The ceilings were only 8 feet, and being an ample space, they felt shallow. The goal was to open the kitchen to the living space, raise the ceiling height, and fulfill the need for a formal entry. Over the next year, all the client’s goals came to life, and what transpired was a re-imagination of this mid-century home to a stunning Mid Century Modern that we were incredibly grateful to be the builder on.

With too many cool features to list, here are a few. The master features glass walls that separate the water closet from the shower. When the homeowner came to us with this idea, we were still determining how it would work or come together, but working with our expert glass company; the final product exceeded everyone’s expectations.

The Primary bathroom also features a two-person sauna that fits perfectly in the space and is used by the homeowners daily. The kitchen features modern flat panel doors and drawer fronts, and the large island has waterfall countertops that appear to be made of concrete but are quartz. The stylish tile backsplash was custom-made from the remaining two bathrooms and was tastefully re-done in mid-century stylings, and they turned out perfect.

This outstanding renovation didn’t stop on the interior. GSB created two incredible and unique outdoor spaces. To take advantage of the astonishing view to the east in the back of the home, a sunken outdoor space was created with sand-finish concrete. A sleek overhead cover constructed with metal and clear fir was designed to create a dry area. A large fireplace created a cozy space for people to enjoy our often cool NW evenings. The original house was void of a front yard. With two young children, the clients wanted a fenced-in space where their kids could play and observe them from inside the home. GSB designed a fantastic courtyard with a one-of-a-kind fence that gave the house a sense of privacy and curb appeal.

This home is an example of what can be created with the right architect, talented designer, and skilled craftsmen. This house will always stand out as one of our most incredible transformations.
