IDL office, Portland – Oregon

January 27th, 2013 by retail design blog

Our Oregon location, home to Satori Engine, Crack and IDL, is in the heart of Pearl District, known as Portland’s creative corridor. Our office is nestled by dozens of art galleries and other creative agencies from every discipline. A 3-story space that is now open and light, makes it difficult to believe that it was once an old office furniture store. Coat upon coat of fresh paint and weeks of demolition later, you could finally see the original beams and the true potential of the space.

Then came the fun part- creating a contemporary space that would both reflect our philosophy and function just as well. One of our maxims at IDL is based on the ethic of collaboration, and thus all workspaces were created to encourage this type of communication and transparency, which meant open spaces and no office doors.

Teams have 3 floors to choose from when meeting to collaborate on projects. From the 3rd floor’s circular table to the 2nd floor’s street view corner, it’s evident that the space was created to be both aesthetically pleasing and functional. With a whiteboard always in sight and even a supershot basketball in the lobby, the team works in an environment that is designed to encourage creativity and maximize productivity.

The area that our team is most proud of however, is the first floor which is also an art gallery. As part of our commitment to the community, the space is also used to promote artists and musicians on a regular basis. We welcome visitors and hope that you will come see our space for yourself, so please stop by if you are ever in the neighborhood!
