Construction has completed on Red House, a 1910 farmhouse that went bold.
Construction has completed on Red House. Award-winning Waechter Architecture was given the challenge of breathing new life into an existing 1910 farmhouse-style building located in an urban SE Portland neighborhood. A balance between new and old was desired; memory of the original balanced with freshness and vitality of the new. The solution was to maintain the original form of the house but abstract it into a modern sculpture.
Additional solutions were to re-imagine the interior as one main room per floor with support spaces surrounding it. This created a \”thickened edge\” around each main room. New windows were cut into this thickened edge with the glass set to the inside.
From the outside, the two-foot deep windowsills give a carved out and sculptural appearance to the house. The exterior is painted a monochromatic red further giving the house an abstract sculptural quality.
Waechter Architecture is an award-winning architecture firm based in Portland, Oregon. Their projects have received wide praise and are regularly published in local, national, and international press.
Red House is located in Portland, Oregon, USA. Construction was completed in August of 2015. Rachel House is 2,200 square feet.
