Classic Portland Heights Home by Architect Emil Schacht Redesigned by Aram Irwin Historic Home Design
Portland, Oregon, United States
A 113-year-old home originally designed by architect Emil Schacht in Portland Heights has been drastically transformed by a team of designers and contractors that included Aram Irwin of Aram Irwin Historic Home Design and Randy Chandler of RR Chandler Design Build Renovate. Irwin, who served as the project’s chief building designer, designed the home’s entire exterior, the entire layout of the interior, worked specifically on the home’s staircase, the kitchen and numerous other design details throughout the project. When the 5,135 square foot home last sold in 2014 for $995,000, much of the interior had been painted white, the design team completely redesigned the interiors incorporating rich woods and built-ins appropriate to the period. Interior details include four stories of stairs with custom balustrades designed by Steve Bock, a dining room with built-in hutch, stained glass and a gently arched barrel ceiling and a stunning Craftsman-styled kitchen. The redesign project cost upwards of $2,000,000. We’ve added in a selection of before photos below.
