Hennebery Eddy helps TriMet update Blue Line MAX facilities, starting with Gresham City Hall station

Hennebery Eddy is working with CH2M to upgrade facilities along the TriMet MAX Blue Line, Portland’s light rail line system that has been in operation for more than 30 years. Along with conducting studies to incorporate a new faregate system, we also developed a “menu” of improvement options for the platform components, including shelter roofs, platform buildings, art glass wind screens, stairways, railings, paving, signage, and lighting.

The Gresham City Hall station was the first on the Blue Line to be completed and opened this summer. It includes a clear fare zone, improves safety and visibility, and reflects standardization in components, signs, amenities, and finishes that are also low-maintenance and durable. For a closer look at the new station, hop over to the TriMet blog, How We Roll, for a video and more details.

Hennebery Eddy has a history of successful transportation architecture and transit design projects, ranging from the award-winning South Terminus to a dramatic expansion at Portland International Airport.

Celebrating 25 Years: People | Values | Future

Hennebery Eddy Architects celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2017. It’s a milestone we’re marking throughout the year by celebrating the people who have contributed to and share in our success, the values that ground our practice and manifest in our design work, and the future that we anticipate sharing with our community of consultants, owners, clients, colleagues, and friends.

On September 14, we welcomed nearly 300 guests to the Garden at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Portland to celebrate, reconnect and toast to building the future of Portland and the region together. Thank you to everyone who joined us!

Interning at Hennebery Eddy Architects: Spotlight on Peter Harrison

Design intern Peter Harrison joined Hennebery Eddy Architects this summer from Utah State University, where he is earning a Bachelors of Interior Design. Passionate about sustainable design, he plans to relocate to Portland, Ore., after graduation. Below, he shares his path to studying interior design and highlights from his internship.

I’ve grown up with a strong passion for design and sustainability, which led me to explore the field of architecture and design. During high school, I took an internship course where I shadowed architects, marketers, landscape architects, and interior designers at MHTN Architects in Salt Lake City, Utah. This experience confirmed my desire to pursue a design degree and attend the highly acclaimed interior design program at Utah State University.

At Utah State, I have gained a wide variety of skills, both design and technical. My coursework has included commercial and residential design, materials, Revit and AutoCAD, architectural systems and code knowledge, sustainable design, as well as a strong emphasis on the fundamental principles and elements of design. I expanded my understanding of sustainable design by participating in the Utah State student chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council. One of the requirements for my program is that I gain professional field experience by completing an internship between my junior and senior year. Since I care deeply about sustainable design, I applied for internships in Portland, Oregon, a natural choice for this market sector. I knew I wanted to be at a mid-sized commercial architectural firm where I could see myself working after graduating.

Hennebery Eddy Tees Off Second Annual Golf Tournament

It’s officially summer and recreational activities are in full swing, which means trips to the coast and a high probability of overly competitive mini golf.

At Hennebery Eddy, we’re all-in. Especially on the mini golf. Not just because it’s fun and hilarious —it also gives our staff the chance to put our design skills to the test with something unconventional.

What does it look like when you give architects 30 minutes to design a 7-hole mini golf course? Take a look:

All of us at Hennebery Eddy wish you and yours a wonderful summer season!
