Portland’s newest office buildings put nature on center stage

Hacker Architects designed the space for Portland’s Frontside District.

Comprising 300,000 sf of office and retail space, Field Office in Northwest Portland is one of Oregon’s largest real estate investments in the past decade. The two new office buildings will house some of the city’s fastest-growing companies.

Hacker Architects designed Field Office to blur the lines between a traditional office space and the outdoors. It includes ground floor gardens and pavilions, living walls, High Parks, and Sky Parks that integrate the landscape into the buildings and bring work spaces outdoors.

Covered outdoor gathering and workspace areas include moveable seating areas and fire pits to encourage tenants to work outdoors. The East Building includes a solar PV array on the roof and both buildings offer onsite vehicle parking and instant freeway access and access to the riverfront promenade. The landscaping includes 78 species of plants and trees all native to the area.

 

 

Field Office also became the first building in Portland to sponsor a station for BIKETOWN, the city’s popular bike share system.

Field Office is targeting LEED Platinum certification.
