The Van Adelsberg / Grant Residence will be featured on the Portland Architectural and Design Festival’s Home Tour taking place October 1st. The original, mid-70s contemporary, 1 bedroom house was designed by Edgar Waehrer. In keeping with the original spirit of the “house in the trees,” the new design adds 2 bedrooms, a home office and expands the interior spaces while retaining its original contemporary northwest form.
