Located in the Hollywood neighborhood of Portland, this is the home of one of our cherished repeat clients. While there have been several projects over the years, this new garage design is extra special and undeniably the cutest. In fact, the general contractor husband actually built this gem for his wife. How cute is that?
Custom brackets support lovely trellises. The one over the garage door highlights the curved header and carriage house-style door. The design secret is that it is actually a modern roll-up garage door.
A side trellis defines the edge of the lushly landscaped cottage-inspired yard and patio. When sunlight strikes the building, the trellises, brackets and eaves create deep shadows that add further detail and texture.
The extra deep structure accommodates a full-size car and provides space for the inevitable collection of bikes, kayaks, and other outdoor gear most Portlanders own. Most importantly, the client has space for the coveted work shop. You’d never know it from the exterior, since the garage has a small, house-like scale, but a lot of function is packed into this storybook setting.
“Not only did Lisa and Adam create the most adorable new garage design for us, but they also designed the interior of our entire house. We highly recommend them for their attention to detail and design.”
