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.
