ALLEYWAY ADU

 

LOCATION: PORTLAND, OR

SIZE: 800 sq' (+150 sq' bike storage) 

STATUS: SCHEMATIC DESIGN

This project is a new ADU with bike storage, located in the Piedmont Conservation District of N/NE Portland. Project goals include minimizing the building footprint to conserve yard area, engaging the paved alleyway at the back of the lot while maintaining privacy, and orienting the project to maximize sun exposure while respecting the privacy of the main house and yard. The bike storage is located in a separate building with a planted roof. A covered entry way connecting the ADU to the bike storage acts as an intermediate zone between the yard and the alley. The ADU includes 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a open floor plan kitchen and living area which opens up to the yard.
