When wanting to trade their farmhouse for a midcentury home in Portland, an Oregon couple set their sights on prolific Portland builder Robert Rummer’s designs. Highly sought after, Rummer homes appear only several times each market cycle, and for good reason… Just look at the clean lines and timeless design of Rummer’s midcentury architecture!

The 1966 A-frame is open and airy, with telltale Rummer features like an indoor atrium and Japanese gardens surrounding the house on all sides. Furnished by the residents themselves, the cool look of their contemporary décor plus the midcentury architecture pulls the home together.

As the now-owners of their Rummer home, they recall: “As soon as I walked in, I was like, ‘we need to buy one of these.’ We just got really lucky that this house came on the market [and that] the timing worked out as well as it did.”
