Works / Adaptive Reuse Madrona Lofts / Portland, Oregon

madronaThe Madrona Lofts in the Rose Quarter of Portland offered a tremendous opportunity to rehabilitate a decaying hotel into much needed inner city, low-income housing complex. GreenWorks was part of a team of designers that analyzed the existing facilities and surrounding development for opportunities to improve both the project site and the pedestrian connections from the community, through the site, to the adjacent Rose Garden.  Applying a number of sustainable site design practices, GreenWorks provided designs focused on developing meaningful pedestrian spaces and strengthening pedestrian connections to the surrounding developments.
