Lincoln Street Live/Work
Lincoln Street Live/Work is a re-boot of a 1907 Craftsman style “Super-Bungalow” situated in an established neighborhood at the base of Mt. Tabor in Portland, Oregon. The existing residence is 5,000 s.f. on four floors (including basement) plus a semi-detached garage. Set on a highly visible corner, on an oversized lot, the house features ornate Craftsman details, such as cross-gabled bays, a full width porch, single siding, and broad open eaves with exposed rafters tails and corbels.
The objective of this project was to bring in daylight. The design leaves all of the distinguishing features of the original house in place, and replaces one of the original cross-gabled bays with a contemporary, glassy, operable, three-story chunk of architecture. This project aims for maximum spatial transformation with minimal modifications to floor plan and cross section. No new square footage is added; however, every room in the house is reconfigured to benefit from the architectural intervention on the facade.
