Union WayProject info >
Union Way is a renovation of two 5,000 sf existing properties in Portland, Oregon’s rapidly commercializing West End in the city’s downtown.
While the project took its initial inspiration from small shop-lined alleys and passageways of cities like Paris and Tokyo, Portland’s climate and culture led to a site specific solution that builds on the energy and momentum of the West End to create a retail project that is also a civic gesture for the City. The project works as an urban connector that joins two buildings with a day lit covered passage and connects Powell’s books on Burnside to the Ace Hotel on Stark.
