  • DESIGN+BUILD Workspace created a space for their offices that would give dynamic opportunities for any type of work in Portland, Oregon.

    We were tasked with designing a 4,500 square foot space to house a growing team while allowing for heavy collaboration and showcasing project work. We worked with the whole company to create a space centered around the kitchen and break area in order to increase inter-departmental interaction. This split the open office into two sides: one side which is reserved for heads-down work and the other for collaboration. We built out an expanded materials library for design and construction teams to reference, several touchdown points for field employees to visit, and a variety of meeting spaces to support a hybrid work model. The material selection started with existing casework that was to remain, determining the resultant monochromatic palette with warm white oak slats that define the central social area.
