Designing for Designers

Design / Build : Portland, Oregon

 

Designing for a designer is always a fun play with ideas. The back and forth, the hand drawing through ideas, the richness of layers that comes through as minds meld together. This was just that - a total joy to work on with this technical fashion designer. 

We started by solving some major stormwater issues where water would annually flow into the basement. (What!?) We quickly solved that with some proper downspout connections to Flowells below the kids trampoline, created a hardscape the slopes away from the house, terraced the garden and curated multiple outdoor rooms for the family to enjoy.
