Cascadia Development Partners

  • COMPLETED: 2014


Located in the Esther Short Building, Cascadia Development Partners occupies a 3,145 sq ft office suite with two other small firms.  Operating separately, the groups share open office space, a conference room, and a staff support area.

The interior design draws inspiration from colors, textures and materials found in the Pacific Northwest and Napa Valley, California.  At the entrance, visitors are welcomed into an elegant reception space that features a thin-veneer stone wall. The use of hand-scraped engineered wood floors, natural wood doors and warm wall colors extends the aesthetic into the rest of the suite.  Enclosed offices flanking the perimeter have full height window and door systems that mimic the exterior glazing, allowing natural light to penetrate into interior open office work areas.  The ceiling was left open to structure and painted white, contributing to the expansive feeling of the space.
