Harrison Square

Mackenzie’s repositioning of the Harrison Building lobby reinvigorated and modernized the building’s sense of place and introduced a set of attractive tenant amenities. Before renovation, the only common area inside the building was a few chairs in the hallway. The design transformed former tenant space into an expanded lobby, inviting lounge spaces, and a coffee shop—all of which build identity and community. The design is a modern take on the building’s midcentury vintage, with wood paneling, lush fabrics, and exposed waffle slab ceiling elements. A series of visual connections link the...Learn more

Harbor Steps - Lobby & Penthouse

Equity Residential contracted Mackenzie to rethink and refresh amenity space in the Harbor Steps development. The endeavor included two distinct projects: the repositioning of the northeast tower’s lobby and the creation of a new multipurpose common room on the 25th floor of the southeast tower. The projects resulted in new communal space with a sharp focus on the property’s incredible view of the Seattle waterfront and Olympic peninsula, nurturing community within the buildings and providing valuable connection to the outside world. The space on the top floor of the southeast tower, dubbed...Learn more


Autodesk’s new Portland office deserved an identity as compelling as its location—the Towne Storage building, a renovated historic warehouse at the Burnside Bridgehead. Working closely with Autodesk and the brand strategists at Think Joule, Mackenzie’s design team interpreted the Autodesk brand through the lens of local context. The workplace is designed to attract and retain talent through carefully thought-out amenity space that fosters engagement, interaction, and an authentic collective identity. Collaborative rooms and meeting spaces are inspired by the tiny house movement, using a...Learn more

240/241 PacTrust

The renovation of PacTrust buildings 240 and 241 resulted in reinvigorated and reimagined buildings cores, and new connectivity between the two buildings. PacTrust, a real estate development and investment property firm, inhabits the space and was deeply involved in the design and remodeling process. The buildings are similar, with parallel redesigns focused on creating and activating collaborative space. In each core, the central staircase was opened to the lobby and new amenity spaces, creating a connective communal area. The open space offers a variety of distinct areas with a range of...Learn more

Triangle Pointe

Built in the late-’60s, Triangle Pointe had never been updated. Great bones were obscured behind dropped popcorn ceilings, beige quarry tile, and a forest of yellow oak. Originally occupied by a single tenant, the building had an entrance and cramped lobby with no sense of arrival. The new purchaser desired to reposition the property to be a viable, productive, multi-tenant office building. The goal was to intrigue, with details providing moments of discovery as visitors moved through the space. The result is a warm interpretation of modern design that offers a fresh counterpoint to the...Learn more

Spirit Mountain Casino Mountain View Sports Bar

With the addition of the South Expansion , also completed by Mackenzie, the casino’s existing buffet was relocated to the new space. This opened up a prime location in the complex, directly across from the main visitor entrance. Mackenzie provided interior design services for the remodel of this area into the new Mountain View Sports Bar. A large dome provides a focal point for the bar, while a custom fabricated mountain panorama surrounds the main dining space. Both elements are lit by specialty mood lighting which changes throughout the day. The stage and dance floor area accommodates a...Learn more

Stadium Fred Meyer Store Remodel & Expansion

Located at the convergence of two neighborhoods and along one of Portland’s busiest corridors, the renovation and expansion of the Stadium Fred Meyer Retail Store on West Burnside represents an urban response to both community and context.

The new store, totaling 110,000 SF, brings energy and life to the streetfront by the building’s realignment along Burnside and 21st Street. The improved frontage along Burnside dramatically enhances the pedestrian...Learn more
