OFFICE / Workplace Interiors

Smart spaces for productive work.

We understand that today’s workplace must put people at the core of the design process and solution. Learning our client’s unique brand, drivers and stories—infused with our research and vision—allows us to build a solution meticulously and strategically tailored to your culture and aspirations. We believe that the greatest workspaces support and empower the very best ideas, maximize productivity, and function seamlessly—all while supporting health and wellness. We anchor our workplace design solutions in four key principles: engagement, empowerment, effectiveness, and experience.

A fifth-generation Portland family business, Harder Mechanical needed a new, modern headquarters to last them for another 80 years. Because reinvention tends to be part of their business—they gain expertise in the newest processes, be it mill work or high-tech manufacturing, and periodically transform themselves along the way—they were looking explicitly for an innovative showcase office. After learning who they are, how they view their work, and what they needed in a collaborative working session, our design encompasses a beautiful, durable brick building using renewable cross-laminated timber (CLT). The new Harder Mechanical building will last for decades, aligning with and improving the Elliott neighborhood in a way that’s both timeless and exceedingly modern.
