Their regional expertise drew Mary and Phil Krueger to approach the firm with an ambitious project: replacing their 1938 property in Lincoln City with a modern home. They wanted their home to take advantage of the stunning Oregon Coast views and have design features like wide door frames that would allow them to age in place through retirement and into their golden years.

Our clients, Dan and Rachel had a modest but perfectly adequate family home situated in a pleasant part of the historic city of Winchester. However, with a growing family and an itching desire to make something more of the house, they approached us in 2013 to see what could be done. Whilst the upstairs was attractive and functional and gave them all the spaces they needed, the ground floor was dark and cramped, with a convoluted layout and small fragmented rooms that left no meaningful space for the family to gather. The connection with the garden, as with so many properties of the era, was compromised by small windows and a lack of a direct access from the kitchen. Perhaps most significantly, the house was architectur... More
