Move The House

This LEED Platinum four-story, mixed use building in Southeast Portland consists of ground floor retail space with three levels of one and two bedroom apartment units on the top floors.  The design of the building was intended to create a contemporary ground floor datum while embracing the historic nature of the building in the units above.  To avoid creating a  "supersized" building, the residential section is divided by a sky-bridge corridor with a contemporary glazing treatment.  The retail stores overlook the south-facing development that looks onto a City-Operated Community Garden.  The building is enveloped by a permeable surface courtyard with vegetated planters and other state-of-the-art features custom designed to manage storm water.
