About Daniel House
Daniel House is a home design studio based in Portland, Oregon. Using classically inspired design principles, we envision, plan, and construct custom spaces for clients around the world.
By intimately studying the homes we work in, we build spaces that celebrate human character and give credence and purpose of the space.
Our spaces are attentive to original form, inspired by the world we live in, and comprehensible to those who inhabit them.
