Our design challenge for the Hi-Lo Hotel was to create a space that met the client’s vision; an elegant marriage of high and low. When we first visited the space it was basically gutted, a beautifully dusty space with raw concrete columns and concrete floors bathed in soft natural light.

Our mission is to create beautiful, livable spaces that meet our clientsâ aesthetic, functional, and economic goals, while respecting the environment.
Our perspective is informed by a respect for historical architecture coupled with an appreciation of the playfulness and freshness of modern design.
Our experience and expertise applies to all types of projects: on smaller residential and renovation work we can produce the drawings necessary for permitting and construction, on larger commercial and new-construction projects we focus on the interiors and work in tandem with architectural and engineering teams.
Our approach is flexible and responsive. We work with some clients who know exactly what they want and we help them achieve it. Others are less sure and we guide them through the design process, helping them to formulate their own aesthetic as we go.
Our network of collaborating professionals, formed through ten years of practice, includes architects, builders, artists, and artisans who share our vision.
We are based in Portland, Oregon but we are currently working on projects in New York, San Francisco, Balboa Island, and Anchorage, Alaska. We enjoy the diversity and learning opportunities offered by working in communities other than our own.
