One North

Located in North Portland, the One North mixed-use development merges nature and neighborhood. The courtyard space is intended to function both socially and ecologically, inviting the public in to engage with and learn about the community’s past, present, and future. A rich palette of plant material provides wildlife habitat in an urban environment and evokes an open meadow within a forest. With artistic boulders positioned as play elements, children are encouraged to play in the courtyard. Feature elements reference the cultural history and include metal banding inscribed with historic and current quotes from neighborhood members as well as the global community.
