Completed in May 2016, the 131,000-sf headquarters for the law firm Stoel Rives is located on the top nine floors of the Park Avenue West tower in Portland, Ore. While its conference rooms are enclosed for privacy, natural light reaches the interior spaces through the use of clear glass relights in the solid wood doors. All offices are enclosed in glass to allow natural light into the center of the plan as well as to create a more transparent, collaborative environment. Some glass doors and panels are trimmed with timber framing to match the room’s interior materials and design (pictured). The Building Team included ZGF Architects (architect, interior design), KPFF Consulting Engineers (SE), Interface Engineering (MEP), Alternatt Associates (acoustics), and Lease Crutcher Lewis (GC).
