Alan Osborne, AIA, vice president and principal at Hennebery Eddy Architects, has earned his Assoc. DBIA certification.

Alan Osborne Retires from Hennebery Eddy Architects

After 20 years of award-winning design practice, operational leadership, staffing management, and professional development oversight, Hennebery Eddy Architects Vice President Alan Osborne, AIA, has retired from the firm.

Alan joined Hennebery Eddy in 2000, designing and managing higher education, institutional, commercial design, public facility planning and renovation, site master planning, and hospitality projects. Throughout his career, clients have appreciated his attention to detail, proactive management style, and problem solving – he was described by one client as “not just seeing a potential problem up ahead, but seeing it from down the street and around the corner.”

Alan’s thoughtful, detail-oriented approach to design and focus on the human experience spans markets and project size. Early in his career with Hennebery Eddy, he served as project manager for the design of the Loyola Jesuit Center in Portland, the design of which was recognized with local, regional, and national awards. More recently, his design leadership for 1,600-square-foot Our Lady of Montserrat Chapel at Seattle Preparatory High School resulted in a Religious Architecture Honor Award from the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art, and Architecture and Faith & Form Magazine, and a Wood Design Award from US WoodWorks. Alan was also principal-in-charge of some of the firm’s significant higher education projects, including the rehabilitation of 116,000-square-foot Strand Agriculture Hall at Oregon State University, completed in 2016, and Cordley Hall at OSU, currently in construction. Alan’s recent civic and government projects include the 2019 DeMuro Award-winning Sherman County Courthouse in Moro, Oregon, and seismic retrofit and interior modification of the Oregon State Supreme Court building in Salem.

Alan was instrumental in forming the Oregon chapter of the Design-Build Institute of America, helping to establish Hennebery Eddy as a leader in design-build and alternative project delivery methods. He earned his certification as an Associate Design-Build Professional, one of only three professionals to earn certification in Oregon in 2018.

Congratulations, Alan! Thank you for your countless contributions to the firm. We will miss your steady leadership, foresight, and counsel, and will ask ourselves regularly, “What would Alan do?”

Hennebery Eddy Recognized for Sustainable Design & Historic Preservation Excellence

Firm named to Architect 50 second year in a row; historical architect named AIA Oregon Young Architect

The end of 2019 brought significant recognition for Hennebery Eddy. For the second year in a row, the firm was named to ARCHITECT Magazine’s Architect 50 – a listing of top firms in the nation. The ranking evaluates firms of all sizes across design, sustainability, and business practices. Our place on the list reflects our design approach and net-positive philosophy.

A significant component of sustainable design is historic preservation, and Hennebery Eddy’s Historic Resources Group brings specialty focus to this practice. The firm is proud to share that historical architect Carin Carlson was named the 2019 Young Architect by AIA Oregon in recognition of her commitment to cultivating and guiding current and future stewards, professionals, and advocates for historic resources through exemplary professional practice, leadership, mentoring and education. Carin is a past City of Portland Historic Landmarks Commission member and recently taught a course on building preservation plans at the University of Oregon.

Hennebery Eddy Designs Adaptive Reuse of 1911 Building into Hip KEX Hotel

At one of the most trafficked corners in Portland – the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and Couch, just past the Burnside bridgehead – sits a three-story, wood-framed structure with a brick exterior. The building has anchored this spot for more than 100 years, but only recently has it become a destination. With much fanfare, the KEX hotel opened here in November 2019, offering a unique experience that was many years in the making.

Hennebery Eddy designed the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of this historic building, which formerly housed The Vivian apartments, into a hostel with a ground-floor gastropub for the Icelandic brand KEX and local restaurant group ChefStable. Guest rooms on the second and third floors offer a variety of private and shared accommodations, while the open ground floor hosts casual dining and a constant stream of musical acts — a key focus of the KEX model. The hostel also features a courtyard with exterior seating and a stunning red neon sign, a rooftop bar and a community gathering room – Gym & Tonic – and conveniences for travelers like a sauna, shared kitchen and laundry rooms, and bike storage.

Firm Promotes Sustainable, Equitable Design Through ‘Net-Positive Awards’

Hennebery Eddy’s second-annual Net-Positive Awards capped a month-long celebration of all things sustainability and honored internal teams for their achievements in healthy, efficient, and adaptive design. Project teams in design and construction were encouraged to share the story of how their designs are creating net-positive solutions responsive to clients, users, and the environment. A panel of five judges from among our staff had their work cut out for them. Ultimately, they selected the following projects, which represent the range of net-positive impacts achievable through our design process.

First Place: Net-Positive Project of the Year – PDX Concourse E Extension

This project (which garnered an honorable mention in last year’s awards program) is targeting completion next summer — and when complete, will offer a remarkable new passenger experience informed by resiliency, equity, and biophilia. The unique, column-free space with high, canted ceilings and a sweeping curtain wall will feature abundant daylight (lighting loads reduced 70%) and views of Mount Hood and the Columbia River. Durable, sustainably sourced, and locally produced materials are also designed to equitably serve a broad population. The project is on track for LEED Gold certification — no small feat for a facility that essentially operates 24/7.

courthouse renovation design by Hennebery Eddy Architects

Sherman County Courthouse Receives DeMuro Award for Preservation

 

Restore Oregon, the state’s leading organization committed to preserving historic structures, presented Hennebery Eddy with a 2019 DeMuro Award recognizing excellence in historic preservation. The firm’s rehabilitation and expansion of the historic Sherman County Courthouse in Moro, Ore., was honored during Restore Oregon’s annual Restoration Celebration on Nov. 1, 2019. The rehabilitation returned the landmark building to its original glory, including a new cupola that replicates the storm-damaged original. In addition, a thoughtfully designed annex complements the historic building and provides additional government and community services space.

The design team’s approach was fully rooted in historic preservation best practices. From the project’s inception, the team’s primary goal was that the new building complement the existing courthouse, granting it appropriate historic deference. This goal drove every aspect of the new building’s design, from location on the site and building height to material choices and window shapes. With more than double the square-footage of the original, the new building was carefully designed to minimize the impact of its mass and scale so as to not overwhelm the much smaller historic courthouse.

Masonic Grand Lodge of Oregon Library & Museum Wins IIDA Award

 

Hennebery Eddy’s design of the new Robert M. Richmond Memorial Library & Museum serving the Masonic Grand Lodge of Oregon received a Best in Category – Public & Civic award from the IIDA Oregon Chapter. Presented during the annual IIDA Oregon Design Excellence Awards celebration, the award recognizes the project’s timeless nature, as well as its simple, site-sourced materials palette. The IIDA is the International Interior Design Association.

The library and museum is a reading and research library and serves as a community and contemplation space for the Oregon Freemasons family. The library was dedicated and opened during a celebration this spring. Nestled among oak trees near Forest Grove, Ore., the new building features expansive glass walls and clerestory windows, and simple, geometric forms comprising wood salvaged from the site. More details and images can be found on the project page.
