Myhre Group Architects will move to expanded offices in Portland's Failing Building, 620 S.W. Fifth Ave. in May.
Myhre leased the 8,200-square-foot fifth floor of the historic 12-story building after outgrowing its digs at the Director Building, 808 S.W. Third Ave.
Myhre associate Liz Kale designed the new office; Skyline Interiors is the general contractor.
The open office design highlights natural wood elements and exposes the 108-year-old building's mechanical systems, including ductwork and concrete panels.
The creative vibe minimizes private offices and ensures all 41 employees, including 11 registered architects, will be work no more than 20 feet from a window.
Myhre Group specializes in all residential property types, hospitality and tenant improvement projects.
Jake Lancaster of Jones Lang LaSalle was the broker for the deal. The building is owned by Walker Place LLC.
