The Harbor House project was the 2009 ASID Student Competition project, and it was completed as the first studio in the MID curriculum. Located in Portland, Oregon, the Harbor House is proposed as a live-work solution for the growing number of teenage runaways in Portland. Harbor House provides room-and-board and counseling services for runaways who are willing to work in the café which helps provide financial support for the Harbor House. This project includes a ground floor that houses the café, offices, counseling rooms and other support areas; and a second floor that includes the resident spaces. The concept for this project originated from the proximity of Portland, along the Willamette and Columbia rivers, and the bridges that span the rivers and the spaces between where we are and where we aspire to be.
Consulting with 4D Designs, this project for a large private school included designs for glass conference room walls, finishes selection and finish plan for a new administration space, and furniture selection for the Family and Student Center.
