Last June we wrote about a commercial project born of love and labor.
It was a major remodel on a 1924 grocery-turned-upholstery shop that was being transformed for use as a studio for vintage poster restoration studio called The Affiche Studios. SBaird Design was hired as consultants by the owner/client, Jason Leonard, who knew the general design direction of the project but needed a bit of professional guidance and collaborative input.
Well, Jason is all moved and settled in. The space has also taken on the role of gallery and event space, Archipelago Portland, its grand opening set for next weekend, Jan 25th. We are so proud of this project, all the hard work that Jason put into it and to watch the design contributions we had the pleasure to make become realized.
It is always amazing to see a project through from start to completion. This project has spanned all of 2014 and we are so thrilled that its one of the first milestones to see reached for 2015.
Well done team, well done.
It is incredibly rare as designers that we have had such a talented client document the renovations for us. With Jason’s permission, we have featured some of his gorgeous Instagram photos from this project, but we highly recommend you check out more photos by searching #archipelagopdx.
