“We hired Kraft because of their detailed approach, honesty with regards to our budget and timelines, and commitment to communication and collaboration. [We] love the finished product and how it fits in with the style of the building. I feel like we were able to stay true to the historical nature of the space while adding modern amenities.”
NW Portland Historic Condo Remodel
2023 | Portland, Oregon
The homeowners of this 1929 Portland condo sought to renovate and maximize their space without sacrificing the historical charm of their home. This project involved a thoughtful reconfiguration of the kitchen floor plan and the incorporation of custom built-ins, all tailored to the homeowner's vision for a contemporary, clutter-free dwelling while safeguarding the property's architectural integrity.
The main concerns of the original space were a lack of functionality and flow. The kitchen was notably confined and dim, limiting both cooking activities and entertainment possibilities. In response to the homeowner's wishes, we created an inviting kitchen with modern finishes and improved storage options throughout the residence.
The intent of design was to honor the integrity of the historic building, while infusing a classic style and art deco accents. This transformation was brought to life through off-white painted cabinetry, black granite and walnut butcher block countertops, and a mosaic tile back splash, adding depth and multi-layer visual interest. Other details include arched openings, champagne bronze plumbing fixtures, and custom scribed crown moulding to create a beautifully finished, elegant look. The result is a refreshed space that brings functionality and beauty to this 1920's condo.
