The Columbia Shores Office Condominium building is the last of a five
building master plan for the Columbia Shores Development in Vancouver,
Washington. Located on the north shore of the Columbia River, the
building is designed to take advantage of the site's physical
attributes: its relationship to the river and the spectacular views east
to Mt. Hood and south to the skyline of Portland, Oregon.
As the final building to be constructed on the site, the building is
designed to blend into the previously established vernacular of English
Country House forms. While constructed of a steel and concrete structure
the building maintains the intimate characteristics and scale of the
previous buildings with a simple pitched roof, stucco walls, circular
attic vents, fabric awnings, detailed steel picket rails and hammered
metal scupper boxes.
Certified a LEED® Silver building the design includes on-site storm
treatment, low energy use lighting and mechanical systems, locally
manufactured wood products, roofing, window framing, glazing and precast.
