SW Portland Kitchen


This Southwest kitchen remodel took what was a dark and tiny kitchen and transformed it into a stunning bright midcentury gem. By adding key elements like a new skylight and rethinking existing elements such as painting the massive fireplace; we were able to stay on budget and deliver our client’s dream kitchen.

We took out a wall and implemented clean white minimalist design features that honor the midcentury home and highlight the gorgeous views that this Hillsdale neighborhood has to offer.


Small space overall

Poor natural light

Not enough prep space

Bad traffic flow

Tight budget


In place of the wall that once closed off the kitchen a 24’ wood beam now punctuates the vaulted ceiling. While the beam nods to the old cedar ceiling, the dual islands provide a perfect opportunity to showcase the repurposed cedar ceiling planks and connect the old with the new.

The dual islands allow for maximum amount of prep space and ease of traffic flow.  Even the family dog has a dedicated pullout drawer with matching countertop for food and water bowls.

Now these homeowners are working with us to redo their master bed and bath!
