I started working with Goldstar last fall designing the interiors of their new Portland Office. It was a quick project, designed and built out about 3 months. Today I finally met up with the talented Lincoln Barbour to photograph the space. I started talking to Lincoln about photographing the space in early December but there were a few delays... his wife had a baby, then there were the holidays, and then at the end of January we adopted our darling baby boy. So here we are almost 5 months later!

Lincoln Barbour photographed our house for the August issue of Portland Monthly magazine, which I was quite excited about. Now I'm even more thrilled because I have copies of some of the photographs without me or my family (or cat) in them to use for my portfolio.

I have been working with Goldstar.com on their new Portland office that will house the developers of the website. The space is an old industrial cold storage building in SE Portland, it has concrete walls, giant wood posts and beams and structural steal bracing. Below are a few pictures right after the furniture was installed. The space was an empty shell before we started, we added a new conference room, telephone room, open workstations and a lounge area. They have been a fun client to work with and I'm excited about the end results.

Photos are all architects have after months, usually years, of hard work spent on a project. We don't end up with a product we can hold and share or hang on our wall. In residential design, especially, we pass our realized design onto the client to occupy and love and we are left with a photograph. That is if we actually get around to photographing the project. I am coming to realize how important it is to properly document my work.

Possibly the trickiest project I have designed from a permitting standpoint, the Davis Residence is complete! When I was in LA in May I stopped by Danny's new house to see how moving-in was going. He was still getting settled but I was able to take a few snapshots. The house looks great! The house, built on a super tight budget, is a tiny 2 story house taking full advantage of the amazing view of Echo Park hills, Elysian Heights and downtown LA. The site is steeply sloped down from the street and the front property line is located 7 1/2 feet from the sidewalk.

The Davis residence in the Echo Park neighborhood in LA is almost complete. It's a small new home on a very steep down sloping lot. The house is about 1300 sq ft including the two car garage, the house alone is around 930 sq ft.

I was contacted by the owner of the Joinery a few months back to come up with a design concept for a new building on their property on SE Woodstock.  The new building would house a restaurant and share outdoor common space with the existing food carts which would be located in the courtyard between the Joinery showroom and the new building.  My client wanted the building to compliment the existing architecture of the surrounding commercial area but also be a modern, green building that reflected the Joinery's commitment to a well designed product.

I have finally taken more photos of my house, the front landscaping is 95% done. I worked with Lauren Hall-Behrens of Lilyvilla Gardens on the Landscape Design. She was great to work with. My house will never really be done but it's getting close!
