We attended the open house for the new Career Center at Dress for Success Oregon, where we helped with the design. The space felt warm and welcoming, which meant we achieved our goal of creating a space (out of a former tattoo parlor!) that is both a refuge and a source of inspiration for everyone who walks in.
It was also wonderful to see how the space accommodated a large crowd. There is a small kitchen (see the dark cabinets in the back of the image above), so the staff can prepare meals for their patrons, who often eat dinner while they are attending evening classes.
It was an honor to be a part of this project, both for the people worked with, and also the people our design will serve. It will be exciting to see how the space gets used over time! All photos by Ingersoll Photography.
