Marvelously Monumental

We love this chair — it shows great evidence of seeing the world through a different lens with a distinct interpretation of “monumental”

Whimsical Winslow Residence

Renovating this family home in Winslow was a fun and creative project for all involved. Bright splashes of color and whimsical wallpaper from Hygge & Wes helped add more life to this already uniquely designed home. The project consisted of the renovation of their 3 bathrooms and kitchen which we procured contemporary wall hung cabinets for added savings. High tech efficient European style hydronic wall heaters, including a bight red one, were installed in the bathrooms and kitchen. We even helped crane a hot tub onto the roof of this 4 story home — that was an exciting day.

A sculpture or a building?

We are big fans of this beautiful architecture. Look how the pixilated voids randomly placed make it appear like a sculpture rather than a building — very cool.

Corten Steel Siding at Irene Place

Our Irene Place remodel is in the process of getting its new corten steel siding installed. You can see the pieces laying in the yard for intentional weathering. It’s an impressive product we are excited to use, as the oxidization process protects it from further rusting and will not require maintenance like most siding.  It’s a great product for those who aren’t interested in re-painting their homes every 5-10 years.  Learn more about this extensive remodel near the Bainbridge Ferry terminal here.

Wow!

WOW! Italian artist Peeta combines elements of graffiti and abstract art to paint murals on buildings like this one that play tricks on the eyes as the image appears to morph and dissolve the structure depending on ones viewing angle. So inspiring! See more of his work here: https://www.peeta.net/

Schel Chelb Home

We are excited to share these beautiful photos of our recently completed Schel Chelb home.  We enjoyed working with BC&J Architects and their fantastic design sensibilities on this project. The new 2900 sf home boasts innovative clear story spaces with beautiful vaulted ceilings.  Impressive cantilevered steel canopies and picture framed windows help give the home it’s contemporary Scandinavian schoolhouse look.  Built to LEED standards with high-end materials throughout, and extremely energy-efficient plumbing fixtures and HVAC system, this home is another testament to sustainability.

New boathouse from the water

The first phase of our Waterfront Bungalow project, the construction of the 200 sf boathouse with cantilevered deck over the water is coming along nicely, as seen in this photo taken from the water earlier today.

Konieczny’s Ark

Konieczny’s Ark is an architectural feat by Polish Architects KWK Promes.  This concrete home looks as if a piece of furniture was picked up and placed in the South Polish landscape.  Learn more about this architectural masterpiece here

A Gift of Symmetry

Now this is an example of truly beautiful design!  It has all the things: a vegetated roof, gorgeous symmetry to define the entrance without a traditional door, use of metal to create slender shapes and so much more…  Nailed it!  Learn more about this home designed by Andersson Wise Architects here:

 

Grateful for all our amazing clients

We are so grateful for all our amazing clients! Here is what one recent client had to say after working with our team.
 
“We are amazed at the design/build talent at 2atara. Craden took one look at our ”problem kitchen” and new immediately what needed to be done. With minimal changes, he transformed our great room and opened up views that we did not even know existed. Everything about the kitchen remodel was spectacular from the layout to the cabinet pulls. It is now very sophisticated and transforms existing elements in the room. Craden was great to work with and very collaborative. In the end, deferring to him on almost everything was absolutely the right choice. He has an EYE. We are looking for another project just so we can hire him again. The guys on the construction team were also terrific, responsive and easy to work with. We would hire them again and feel we made a great decision to go with2atara design + construction for our remodel.”

This staircase delights us

This staircase just delights us! A perfect combination of clever design and functionality – a staircase that is also a piece of furniture. May all staircases be as nifty as this one! Check out our Pinterest board for more inspiring staircases.

Jones Kitchen

This beautiful home on the tranquil waters of Port Blakley recently underwent a significant kitchen remodel, reorienting it to maximize views of the harbor and help the space breathe. The appliances, lighting and color scheme were chosen for their subtlety, keeping the focus on the views beyond.

The integration of modifications to massive columns and a river rock fireplace into the new contemporary kitchen was a way to tie the rest of the public spaces into the kitchen remodel.  Milled wood and brass plates wrapped on the bases of the columns were just a few of the unique design features added.  Stonework modifications on the chimney gives the impression the stones are peeling off and flowing across the floor. These stones were repurposed from a dismantled chimney at another 2atara project on the Island.

This innovative new kitchen was designed with collaboration at its heart.  The space was envisioned in a way so that the client, a gifted wood-worker, could contribute his skill. At 2atara we value this kind of collaboration, allowing clients to feel more invested in their projects.
