Hammer & Hand Offices and Workshop

Hammer & Hand Offices and Workshop

Portland, OR

2016 - 2017 (unbuilt)

Project Description :  Hammer and Hand was planning a relocation and expansion of their workshop and administrative headquarters. This was to allow them to accelerate their production of custom 

hand-made furniture, cabinets and high performance windows and doors. Hammer and Hand also 

desired the building to be a demonstration of their craftsmanship and the high performance building technologies they champion. The site’s location at the gateway to Portland’s Grand Avenue Historic District dictated a historically sensitive and pedestrian friendly approach without sacrificing the Net Zero Energy performance desired. Holst was able to achieve this by designing an air tight, highly insulated envelope, with careful attention paid to control of solar heat gain.
The project went on hold at the beginning of CDs.


Project Role :  Project Architect, coordinated outside consultants, focused on Passive House exterior wall and heavy timber/CLT detailing.
