Thurman Street Lofts

A collision of influences.

By uniting a love of nature, design and casual modern living with attention to detail, this 26,000 sf. mixed-use building sensitively engages the nostalgic character of Portland’s historic Northwest District. As to not overwhelm the site's surrounding context, while responding to the higher density and commercial requirements of zoning changes, the perceived building height is reduced by situating the mass of the top floor units backward.

Breathable exterior skin

Contrasting shades of sustainable Brazilian Ipe siding create visual interest and help minimize the perceived mass of the building. This Ipe rainscreen also provides a strong, breathable exterior skin.

Attention to detail

Loft interiors are graced with exposed wood ceilings, hardwood floors, granite countertops, and expansive windows. Serving both function and cost, an energy-efficient radiant floor heating system warms each unit for a fraction of the cost of traditional systems.

“The Thurman Street Lofts…extend the articulated, wood exterior towards a more sculptural end, with windows almost carved from the dark wood facades.” — John Hill, Daily Dose of Architecture
