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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Completed: Nov 2019
