Willamette Heights

Willamette Heights

Designed by renowned Architect William Christmas Knighton in anticipation of the 1905 World’s Fair, this historic marvel resides in Portland’s coveted Willamette Heights neighborhood.

Dyer Studio’s mission was to create a Kitchen and Mudroom that seamlessly integrated with the home and echoed its innate character, while supporting daily life for an active family of five.

Respect for the original architecture was at the core of our work. To maximize space and make the Kitchen feel more expansive, we removed the dropped ceiling plane from a previous remodel to uncover the original 12 foot ceilings, eliminated an unused brick chimney, re-imagined the circulation from Exterior to Mudroom to Kitchen, and transformed the street-facing bump out from an oriel window to a box bay window to create a Nook.
