Loyola Jesuit Center

Hennebery Eddy designed the 6-acre Loyola Jesuit Center campus to fit naturally into its park-like setting in Southeast Portland. Four buildings of Northwest regional character provide living and working facilities for 30 Jesuits and guests and serves as the headquarters for the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus. The campus includes a group residence, guest residence, common dining hall, chapel, office space, and conference center. We sited the buildings to reinforce the chapel as the focus and to blur the line between interior spaces and the dramatic sylvan landscape. American cherry panels, fir casing, and slate floors create a backdrop for key spaces, and flexible furnishings establish a welcoming and comfortable work environment.

“Hennebery Eddy Architects was a joy to work with throughout this project. They listened well … their suggestions helped us avoid mistakes and kept us on track both in budget areas and code issues … I believe we got an extremely impressive result for our limited dollars. They truly discovered our needs and wants and designed within budget.”

— Fr. Steve Dillard, former Project Manager, Loyola Jesuit Center, Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus
