One North: Karuna East & West BuildingsPortland, OR

R&H constructed One North, a unique development featuring two office buildings with a dramatic, sweeping design. Both the four-Story East building and five-story West building are constructed of post and beam heavy timber over concrete podium, and house office space and ground floor retail.  While sustainability certification was not a goal, the buildings were constructed to near passive haus standards and are united by an open courtyard area.
