Goat Blocks

An Industrial Destination

Developed in a space previously maintained by a herd of friendly neighborhood goats, Goat Blocks is a multi-block, mixed-use project that connects Portland's industrial past with a creative future. Positioned between a historic residential neighborhood and a vibrant industrial area in transition, this mixed-use development is the area’s new, social hub. We wanted to create a place for everyone. Three industrial-inspired buildings knit together shops big and small, restaurants, a cider taproom, a grocery store, and apartments. Pedestrian alleyways draw the neighborhood in; apartment balconies and a rooftop lounge draw residents out. Since completion, the live, work, shop destination in the Central Eastside Industrial District (CEID) has emerged as a hot spot for innovation, creative industries, and entrepreneurship.

Gray’s Landing

Affordable Homes in Portland’s South Waterfront

Gray’s Landing is designed, built, and operated as part of a holistic vision to reclaim Portland’s South Waterfront from industrial district to a diverse, mixed-use community. As the district’s first affordable housing development, the LEED Platinum project set high standards for efficiency and inclusivity. This six-story mid-rise is home to 42 veterans affected by homelessness, with another 167 units for people whose incomes are below 60% of median incomes. Gray’s Landing also houses the REACH Community Development headquarters, whose long-term approach to development harmonizes with our holistic approach to energy efficiency. The private nonprofit continuously educates residents on energy conservation, which maximizes the building’s long-term energy efficiency and in turn, reduces tenants’ utility costs. Gray’s Landing represents a new frontier in affordable and sustainable living—proof that the two aren’t mutually exclusive. Its design ensures efficiency over the entire lifespan of the building, but residents are the critical component. Together, they can make the South Waterfront a resilient, healthy community for future generations.

Swedish Medical Center Ambulatory Infusion Clinic

Multidisciplinary Design Collaboration

What at first seemed like a straightforward, 5,500 sq. ft. interior tenant improvement project for Swedish Medical Center—relocating their ambulatory infusion clinic, as part of their First Hill hospital’s larger expansion—proved an intricate, complex, and exciting interior and architectural design challenge. Since their existing AIC was located in the main acute care facility, our collaborative team faced a wider opportunity to completely rethink their new space in an outpatient facility, touching on every aspect of healthcare design: medical planning, equipment planning, clinical engineering, respiratory services, food services, waste-removal services, medical delivery, security, and entertainment. And once underway, multiple scope changes squeezed the project’s already tight schedule even tighter. Thanks to true collaboration with hospital clinicians and users, and a rabid, nimble design process, we made it happen. We delivered Swedish Medical Center’s new AIC on schedule, on budget, and with a design that helps patients—and staff—feel taken care of.

Bellevue College Student Success Center

A Student Center with a Higher Mission

College is a major transitional time in a student’s life, and their first steps into this new adventure are crucial. Sitting high on a hill in the center of the Bellevue College campus, the Bellevue College Student Success Center represents not only a trailhead leading to campus, but a map to the next stage in a student’s educational journey—a place where they’ll receive guidance, reflect on their progress, and celebrate their achievements. A 71,462 sq. ft., ground-up, progressive design-build project, the building’s layout mirrors a student’s journey at the college, with entry services located on the first floor, student support services on the second floor, and students success services on the top floor. Our team worked closely with Washington State Department of Enterprise Services (DES) representatives through rigorous value engineering processes, topographical challenges, and management changes. We successfully managed all these considerations and worked in conjunction with Bellevue College’s stakeholders to drive the design while maintaining project goals, schedule, budget, quality, and contractual obligations. The project is on track to reach its targeted certification of LEED Silver, on time and within budget.
