PORTLAND LIVING MARKET COMPLEX:
PORTLAND, OREGON

 

Given the opportunity to work with a site and program of my choosing, I was initially intrigued by the lack of community gardens in Northwest Portland, and began exploring ways to address this while still creating a realistic and profitable program on the high-value site at NW 21st and Burnside Avenue in Portland, Oregon.  As the project went on, the program evolved to become an 80 unit apartment complex with ground-floor retail and a rooftop restaurant.  Flanking the west side of the tower is a local produce market, opening into a public square.  Utilizing the space of its generous footprint, the market contains a living roof with two components: one for growing produce for the market, and another serving the neighborhood as a community garden, helping to fill the community garden void in the neighborhood.
