Modernizing a Portland House
A recent whole house renovation I completed involved modernizing a nondescript 1980's era home. The renovation involved replacing all the windows and doors, new roof, new bathrooms and new LED lighting throughout. The challenge was to create a very contemporary interior in architectural spaces that were generic and definitely not modern in character. The solution was to find a balance between clean minimalist details and contemporary surfaces that would not look out of place in the existing building. The overall effect is bright light filled spaces with warm wood finishes that create a comfortable daily living environment.
