Clay Creative

Clay Creative was a major renovation project in the heart of Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District. The warehouse that formerly occupied the site was almost entirely destroyed by fire in 2006. Mackenzie utilized what remained of the old building, and the project has resulted in a catalytic new mixed use property that fits seamlessly in the cultural context of the neighborhood. The building’s juxtaposition of brick and wood—it’s supported by a heavy timber structural system—is a natural fit for a bustling industrial area full of historic warehouses. The operable windows are large,...Learn more
