Observation Studio was approached by a general contractor and maker couple interested in developing a prototypical ADU product for Portland’s rapidly changing housing market.

Observation Studio has designed a system of program volumes at the ground level in conjunction with variable roof designs to offer prospective buyers options without necessitating a fully custom building.

Working within the City of Portland’s strict zoning and aesthetic codes, each option offers a generous covered exterior porch and double height living / dining space.
