Design Build PortlandMusician’s Dwelling

The first Hammer and Hand project on the tour is the Musician’s Dwelling (referred to as “Curtis Creative Small Infill” by the tour), a small-footprint home that integrates living space with an active studio for jazz, painting and videography.  A garage flex space on the ground floor will function as a future accessory dwelling unit.

Design Build PortlandTwin Studios
Twin Studios (referred to as “Engstrom & Werlin Duplex Renovation” by the tour), our second featured project, is an exemplar of low-cost, high-value conversion of a marginal single family home to a beautiful green duplex. Building materials were reclaimed and repurposed throughout the building process, combining traditional detailing with a modern aesthetic.
