They call it Garden House.

Pavilion House in Portland, Oregon by Waechter Architecture

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Article source: Waechter Architecture

Our clients wanted a glass house.  The difficulty was that they wanted this house placed on a visually exposed 50’ x 100’ city lot that they owned in NE Portland.  This posed the challenge of designing a glass house with privacy.  Our solution was to design a pavilion-like structure in which the body of the house is supported by 4 ten-foot tall “legs.”  The legs are placed strategically to block unwanted views and provide privacy.

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

Article source: SERA Architects and CO Architects

As Design Architects and Interior Designers, CO Architects worked closely with Executive Architect SERA Architects to create the design for the Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB), which embodies and helps achieve the goals of an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional campus. The building does so in the form of a 12-story complex with 500,000 square feet of space for classrooms, lecture halls, and laboratories for research and teaching, including medical simulation laboratories for high-tech, team-based learning. The building is conceived as an innovative model of interdisciplinary health sciences education and research, engaging students, faculty, and pedestrians through a concept of “health science on display.” Slated to open July 2014, CLSB, which is targeting LEED Platinum, will also be a striking new landmark on Portland’s South Waterfront.

Hillsboro Shute Park Branch Library Renovation in Oregon by Hennebery Eddy Architects, Inc.

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Article source: Hennebery Eddy Architects, Inc.

After 40 years of constant use Shute Park Branch Library had devolved into a dark, cluttered, and inefficient interior space that had little connection to its namesake park. This comprehensive renovation included a complete reorganization of the floor plan and was based on the integration of three transformative characteristics -establishing a new relationship to the park, openness, and natural light.

Bud Clark Commons in Portland, Oregon by Holst Architecture

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Holst Architecture

Project Overview

As a centerpiece of Portland’s Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, Bud Clark Commons (BCC) represents a new approach to providing dignified housing and comprehensive services to help those experiencing homelessness. Funded by a combination of low-income housing tax credits, urban renewal funding, and HUD stimulus dollars, the project sets a new standard by combining permanent supportive housing and temporary shelter with a community resource center.

Located at the gateway to downtown Portland near historic Union Station, BCC sits between the Pearl District, an upper-income mixed-use neighborhood, and Old Town/Chinatown, a district undergoing an unprecedented level of redevelopment. The LEED Platinum project achieves a perceivable balance between the rigorous programmatic requirements of a coalition led by the City of Portland, a progressive design approach, and sustainable building practices.

The project’s mission is to provide a continuum of services to help transition homeless individuals toward stable, permanent living arrangements. The architecture helps achieve this goal in the expression of both form and function: a walk-in day center with public courtyard and access to services; a 90-bed temporary shelter; and a separate and secure entrance to 130 efficient, furnished studio apartments for homeless men or women seeking permanent housing with support services.
