The Pacific Center is located in the heart of downtown Portland. GBD renovated the main lobby, the retail corridor, the second and third floor corridors/public spaces at the lobby atrium, the building’s main conference room, building café and multi-tenant elevator lobbies. The total renovation for the class-A office building was 14,850 sq. feet.
The owner’s goal was to attract and retain high-quality corporate tenants; GBD achieved this goal through the use of select finishes and placement of key elements that create intimacy. We created a first-class building lobby, which creates a “living room” gathering space for building tenants.
We selected materials with sustainability in mind. The carpets have recycled backing; the stones are all-natural or composites of recycled glass and stone; the paints, adhesives and sealants are low-VOC; and all casework is formaldehyde-free. The stone tile floor, in a light colored marble, gives the space a feeling of quality and permanence. New decorative pendant lights add to the residential style. The furnishings have a traditional and timeless style, making people feel comfortable and at home in the space.
