Ione Plaza, Portland, Oregon

For this mid-century apartment building, Shapiro Didway worked with Leeb Architects and the Myhre Group in the development of a renovated entry plaza and adjacent seating areas. n elevated gathering and seating area provides an urbane space of calm overlooking the hustle and bustle of the Portland State University campus and park blocks. A cascading, stepped water feature connects the elevated plaza to its dynamic urban context while also providing a memorable marker of the building’s main entrance. A series of carefully placed ramps negotiate the elevation change between plaza and streetscape and provide an accessible path to and from the building entrance.
