A lot has happened since our last newsletter! G/S Architects was the recipient of an International Interior Design Association Citation Award for the design of the Crane Building Penthouse. The Hellberg / Tierney House was featured on the Lake Oswego Historic Homes Tour. We were selected to represent the State of Oregon in the upcoming book “50 US Architects.” Projects to be featured in the book will include The Leftwich Residence, Hollcroft Residence and The Walnut House. Also in the press, the Fritz Kitchen was featured in Portrait of Portland and the Crane Building Penthouse will be featured in the upcoming winter issue of Luxury Home Quarterly. In addition to all of this, we’ve had a number of projects begin construction or have recently been completed.
Edic Residence
A few of our recently completed projects include the Edic Residence, Thomas Residence and an art studio for artist Kristin Fritz. The Edic Residence is a fine example of a mid-century courtyard house and will be featured in the upcoming fall issue of Portrait of Portland magazine.
Thomas Residence
The Thomas Residence, a 1939 Laurelhurst Colonial, was a two-part project with the first phase being an exterior renovation and the second being a complete kitchen remodel and addition. This project is an excellent example of creating a modern open kitchen that merges today’s sensibilities with the details and aesthetic of a classic Portland colonial. Jennifer Guggenheim of Fig Studio was the interior designer on the project.
Fritz Art Studio
Artist Kristin Fritz asked us to design an art studio following our design of her kitchen remodel. Nestled amongst the redwoods in the backyard of her 1960s NW modern home, the new art studio takes full advantage of both the beautiful site and the opportunity to embody the bright, open and creative space desired by Kristin.


Buoyant Spirits by: Tracie Broughton

Both Tracie’s and Kristin’s studios will be open to the public through the Portland Open Studios tour taking place this October. Additional information regarding this tour can be found at: www.portlandopenstudios.com.
Wood Residence Art Studio
On the subject of art and artists, our client Jane Wood has opened a new gallery in NW Portland. Victory Gallery, located at 733 NW Everett, will focus on promoting the work of both emerging and mid-career international artists. To learn more about Victory Gallery’s current exhibition, visit: www.victorygallery.com.
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. After completing the house, G/S Architects was hired to design a detached art studio for the house. The new art studio will create a private yet dramatic courtyard entry. The studio will be nearing the final stages of construction during the home tour. Tickets and additional information for the home tour can be found at: www.aiaportland.org.
