Abernethy Flats

Project Info

Abernethy Flats
Portland, Oregon
27,000 sf

Seeking to target the Energy Trust of Oregon’s standards for new construction, the design for the Abernethy Flats prioritizes daylight access, natural ventilation, and the use of materials that are healthy, efficient, and recyclable. The top three floors are comprised of 1 bedroom and studio residential units, with 2 retail units on the first floor intended to contribute to the activation of the street. Located in inner SE Portland, this mixed-use apartment complex is scaled to cohere with the eclectic mix of surrounding single-family houses and small commercial buildings, drawing form and material inspiration from the neighborhood aesthetic and translating them into a modern mixed-use apartment building.
