Our studio is located in a pre-war warehouse in NE Portland. The building was constructed in 1938 and was used during World War II for building ships for the war effort. The warehouse is unremarkable from the street, but inside, it’s 30-foot bow truss ceilings and clerestory windows give it a lot of character.
We are in an open seating plan. No offices. No cubicles. 70 desks all along one end of the 13,000 square foot space. Meeting rooms, lined with whiteboards, fill the other end. Down the center is the teepee, several small sitting areas and lunch tables. The 20 ft tall, wooden teepee is soundproofed on the inside and outfitted for video conferencing. All of our furniture was designed and built by Ben Klebba of Phloem Studio.
