This prominent two-story 1908 Historic Landmark building in the heart of Columbia City was ready for a new entry design. We started with researching the history of the building and nieghborhood. One of the distinctive characteristics of Columbia City's early history and development is that business owners generally lived within two or three blocks of their businesses. Example, Theodore Weed who built the Weed Building lived in a modest home just a few blocks away. With our inspiration, we designed a classic traditional wainscoting to frame the entry and staircase leading to the commercial spaces on the second floor. Next on our list was the selection of a grand chandelier, paint and stain finishes. We enjoyed this project in one of our favorite nieghborhoods.
