West Coast-based R&A Architecture + Design has fused two buildings on the national historic register in downtown Portland, Oregon, to create a new “house of welcome” for the city.
“The handsome bones of both buildings have been repointed and reinforced, right up to the metal mansard roofs, while the interiors shine with brass inlays, black lacquer and hand-blown glass lights, alongside grey timber floors, 10ft-long leather sofas, and steel and wood spiral staircases in the 20ft-high loft suites on the third story. This being Portland – a gastronomic hotbed par excellence – it’s no surprise that the kitchen, headed by Doug Adams, is in top form, sending out dishes like a smoked chicken paired with stacks of home-made tortillas, guacamole and green salsa, and dry-aged beef burgers cocooned in twice-cooked onions, butter pickles and mustard mayonnaise.”
“The interiors were as thoughtfully considered as the exteriors. “We look at interior design like architects. Each room is treated as a smaller, individual project,” explains Christian Robert, R&A Architecture + Design co‐founder and principal. The result is a dialogue between all of the spaces: each with a unique look, yet still collectively complementing one another….Supple leather, sleek lacquer, and plush velvet are combined to create a unique sensory experience for guests. “Everything you touch in the guestrooms has been considered. It’s about the unexpected textures,” says Brooks Atwood, design director at R&A Architecture + Design.”
