When an empty-nester couple decided to move from their single-family home to a penthouse condo in the Uptown neighborhood of Portland, where stately Victorian houses give way to hip restaurants and boutiques,
the process of making a new home was only the beginning.
A panoramic 14th-floor view through floor-to-ceiling glass dazzled, but its finishes and architectural details
fell flat. With the help of trusted designer-turned-friend Kim Hagstette, the opportunity emerged to reinvent
the space, engaging a spectrum of artisans and artists along the way. “The thought was, if we’re going to
do this, I’d like to really do it thoughtfully and with a more modern design in mind,” the homeowner recalls.
“It’s a complete departure from our previous home or any place that we’ve ever lived.”
