Saul Zaik House / Jessica Helgerson Interior Design

Saul Zaik House by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design

Saul Zaik House is a single-family house that was recently completely renovated by Portland-based Jessica Helgerson Interior Design.

From the designer: This project was a thorough remodel of a 1950s house by prominent Portland architect Saul Zaik. Though the house had some beautiful features, most notably a sunken living room with expansive corner windows, the house had been poorly remodeled over the years. A later expansion had added on three bedrooms with aluminum windows and flat ceilings, which did not match the details and style of the original house. We thoroughly reworked the interior floor plan, relocating the master bedroom and bathroom to the rear of the house.

In our material choices, and in all the details for the project, we took a careful cue from the best of the original house. Our mantra for the project was “What would Saul do?” We studied the ways the windows and doors were set into walls, the window proportions, which wood species had been used where… and strove to follow that set of rules.
