Trademark

Reclaiming Downtown LA for Urban Living

Inspired by the site's history, our interior design concept for Trademark hinges on kinetic motion, contrast, and reflection. We fuse Art Deco style with elegant, abstract interpretations of train travel to bring residents aboard an experience of effortless living and contextual luxury. Trademark’s dynamic, ground-level leasing lobby encourages activity and social connections between staff and residents. The hospitality-inspired feel is reinforced through the use of natural stones, warm wood textures, luxe metals & mirrored ceilings. Upholstered front concierge desk and integrated illumination are reminiscent of glamorous train car appointments The materials are used to create an elegant, modern, and enduring bridge between past and present. Bronze metal above the leasing desk artfully recalls the scale and form of train tracks. Decorative lamps provide the intimate, warm glow throughout the space, reflecting brilliantly against wood and metal accents that highlight the custom wall covering mural behind the built-in concierge desk. Beyond the lobby, Art Deco-inspired metal screens and patterning serve as wayfinding elements that guide residents through key transition areas; they are a cohesive welcoming feature when entering or exiting elevators, units, or amenity spaces. Customized unit entry signage and lighting completes the hospitality feel of our design. The clubroom and outdoor courtyard on the third level are the “extended living room” of the luxury residence. Complete with space to entertain guests, take a fitness class, or relax in a private cabana beside the pool, our design coordinates each space to create a collective amenity retreat in the heart of DTLA.

The Vera

Attainable Beauty in Affordable Housing

Beautiful and affordable housing is so rare, yet so necessary. In Portland’s Riverplace district, the Vera proves that both are possible. Developed through a visionary collaboration and honoring the spirit of Vera Katz—Portland’s beloved former mayor and the first female Speaker of the Oregon House of Representatives who fought for stronger communities through civic revitalization—the 13-story affordable apartment building weaves together onsite job training and education, contemporary unit designs, and some of Portland’s best waterfront views. Despite unprecedented pricing escalation in the local housing market, the Vera was developed on schedule with precise design details and team collaboration. A unique collaboration among BRIDGE Housing, Portland Housing Commission, Portland Housing Bureau, and Williams/Dame & Associates made the Vera feasible. An open, integrated relationship between Hoffman Construction and Ankrom Moisan’s teams made it real. Our vision, that dignified housing is a basic human right, makes it magic.

Whatcom Community College Student Housing

Cultivating Community

For many people, especially international students, college is the first home away from home. Leaving behind your family, friends, hometown, even familiar foods can be hard. Interestingly, this effect often recurs later in life; our senior housing projects are explicitly designed to counteract similar feelings of social isolation and homesickness. But designing for new social support systems is really only possible by aligning thoughtful design with equally thoughtful programming and planning. When Whatcom Community College in Bellingham, WA, realized that their school needed on-campus student housing, they knew that staying competitive with other community colleges also meant establishing a successful student housing program. They didn’t simply need their first brick-and-mortar student housing, in other words. They needed to cultivate community. Our design concept for Cedar Hall began here.

Providence Reed’s Crossing Wellness Center

An Integrated Approach to Healthcare Design

Population health relies on more than simply treating sickness. Our client’s strategy leads a healthcare shift from a fee-for-service financial model to a value-based model whose viability depends on people staying healthy and not getting sick. It’s embodied by a new healthcare center that integrates traditional clinical services with wellness facilities. Through a community-oriented gym/studio/spa environment combined with primary care, urgent care, women’s care, imaging, pediatrics, and more, our design connects services with open, thoughtful architecture and interior design blending in an active urban environment. Our hope: To help people get and stay healthy.
