Krownlab Headquarters

Tucked into the industrial disctrict of Northwest Portland, OR, the Krownlab building exemplifies creative repurposing of a 1930's warehouse.  The board formed concrete structure was originally used for producing braided steel cable for the shipping industry.  Beams and joists were sand-blasted to reveal old growth Douglas Fir, balancing the predominance of concrete and glass.  An open office floor plan was achieved by using fixed and sliding glass panels and half-wall partitions.  Krownlab sliding door hardware was used for entryway, conference room, and private meeting rooms.

The individual divisions and employees were deployed in several older buildings and any cooperation between the teams was difficult. And it is absolutely necessary for the perfect output of work.

Design Office

Located on North Lamar Boulevard just north of downtown Austin, Clayton Korte’s office embodies the firm’s commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration and to fostering discourse in the design community. Officially named Design Office, the mid-century office space is home to two design practices, Clayton Korte and Word + Carr Design Group, a landscape architecture firm.   The 1963, steel-framed, brick-infill building needed a lot of work, but Clayton Korte recognized the untapped potential of its raw spaces.

A severe slope and unstable soils meant the first order of business was stabilizing the stru... More
