Siteworks has begun retrofitting two underutilized retail spaces of the ENSO apartment building in NW Portland, transforming them into 8 ground floor apartments. New entry corridors where created to add security and privacy to the units, while generating gallery spaces and places of interaction. Custom steel wall panels accentuate the raw concrete and glass shell, while fir framed windows provide daylight and add warmth to the interiors. Here are some renderings of the spaces.

Siteworks Design | Build is partnering with Larry Nutt Design Service and Koch Architecture to design and renovate a 10,000 sf building on the corner of NW Everett St. and NW Park Ave. A new 2nd story addition and rooftop deck will provide a vibrant outdoor seating area that will make one feel as they are in the canopy of the adjacent trees. Here is a sneak peek at some renderings of the design.

The Travel Channelis back in Portland, this time to feature the city's love of beer, bikes and sustainability.
The show's producers certainly knew where to look to find all three: Hopworks BikeBar on North Williams Avenue.

"Because of our unique position as a place that embodies bike culture, sustainability and craft beer, we're used to travel media coming through," said Bruce Kehe, Hopworks marketing director.
That's not to say having the Travel Channel in the house Tuesday wasn't a big deal. With popular shows like Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations and Adam Richman's Man v Food — both of which have shot segments in Portland — attracting huge audiences, landing a coveted segment can have visitors lining up outside your door.
Just ask the folks at Voodoo Doughnuts. Bourdain's visit back in 2010 helped cement the purveyor of all manner of doughy concoctions as a top stop for Portland tourists.
Hopworks will be featured on a new program called Unpacked, set to debut in April. The Portland segment is slated to air in mid-May.
The show's crew spent about two hours at BikeBar interviewing Brew Master and owner Christian Ettinger. "Of all the spots we've done, this one was one of the best. They had great questions and it went really well. I love being challenged to come up with a good spontaneous reply."
After Hopworks, the crew packed up and headed to Alberta Park to film a game of bike polo — in the pouring rain.
A little rain rarely stops much in Portland. And it apparently hasn't dampened the Travel Channel's taste for the city either.
