Garrison Hullinger Interior Design (GHID) continues along their trend of stunning commercial multi-use designs with the newly unveiled Rowlock, in Hillsboro, Oregon. Throughout Rowlock thoughtful design is used to help residents find their way, accomplish everyday tasks, and even brighten up their day.

GHID is no stranger to multifamily design, Rowlock is the second GHID building in the Orenco Station project, coming shortly after Hub 9 was opened in June of this year. Vector is the next building, set to open Summer 2016, in the Orenco Station “master project” being developed by Holland Partner Group. All three buildings include interior design by Garrison Hullinger Interior Design and building design by Leeb Architects.

Rowlock is an ambitious and colorful project that takes the urban and hip facets of a bustling big-city downtown and transplants to a town just outside of Portland, OR.
Through found objects, popping color, and thoughtful design, this building is not only stylish, but a practical place to live.

“Our favorite part of this process is listening to the needs of the client, their vision of how the residents will be using the space,” says Garrison Hullinger, Principal Designer at GHID. “We then create a loose abstract design that shows our intent; from that point we developed the public spaces by adding layers of metal, tile and wood elements that will give the interiors their own unique personality.”

Through respecting both form and function, GHID creates a space that people want to live, work, and play in. Both Rowlock and Hub 9 have set leasing records for Holland Partner Group.

The thoughtful design begins right when you enter the garage. A vintage mural lines the entrance of the garage paying homage to the location’s storied past, which used to be the location of Oregon Nursery Company. As you enter the lobby through the garage a transition happens, the entryway, which mixes metal, lights and wood combines the urban feel of Rowlock with its rural agro-industrial inspiration.

Aside from the brightly colored mailroom, which provides residents with helpful color cues when finding their mailbox. Color also plays an important role in the corridors. Each corner of each floor has a specific color. This design allows residents to find their way in hallways that might otherwise seem confusing and never-ending.

Rowlock was designed to be a transited oriented community. For those who want to feel like they’re living in downtown Portland, but want the comforts of suburban living. The design not only inspires residents with its unique qualities, but also makes everyday life a little easier.
