OFFICEUNTITLED combines two iconic buildings to create Portland’s Woodlark Hotel
West Coast-based OFFICEUNTITLED, formerly R&A Architecture + Design, has fused two buildings on the national historic register in downtown Portland, Oregon, to create a new “house of welcome” for the city. Built in 1912, the Woodlark Building was Portland’s first official high-rise and its earliest example of reinforced concrete construction. Its neighbor, the Cornelius Hotel, was built of wood and steel four years prior, and became known as the city’s “house of welcome”. Their recent synthesis has created the 150-room Woodlark Hotel.
