project: Run Our Dreams, LLC
location: Portland, Oregon
services: site master planning, analysis and design, urban design, stormwater design, renderings, construction and bid document preparation, specifications, cost estimating, and construction administration.
program: Planning studies included the building placements and integration of a high traffic vehicular arrival/ drop off point with a highly used pedestrian courtyard for employees. The drop off area needed to accommodate deliveries, visitors and staff with an architectural and wayfinding language that reflected a new ‘upscale’ sensibility for the company as well as clear visual ques to the points of entry. A massive stormwater feature in the adjoining courtyard collected rainwater from the roof and channeled it through an architecturally designed and detailed scupper into a dramatic sculptural receptacle designed around a large infiltration basin. Specialty pavement and furniture design rounded out the outdoor employee open space.
