Needmore’s Office Building in Portland Architecture

Brian Libby just posted an excellent writeup on the architecture of the Olympic Mills Commerce Center (our office), by Works Partnership.

A series of four courtyards cut into the warehouse with skylights to bring in natural light. These double-height courtyards, encircled by second-floor catwalks, are the most pleasant and photogenic portions of the building. They’re clad in slatted wood (made of 2×6 flooring) that was re-milled from several wood grain cribs that had been part of the tower’s grain elevator.
