“Adaptive Reuse and Historic Preservation,”
Summary of Portland Historic Resources Zoning Regulations
Record of its time. The historic resource will remain a physical record of its time, place, and use.
Changes that create a false sense of historic development, such as adding conjectural features or
architectural elements from other buildings will be avoided;
Historic changes. Most properties change over time. Those changes that have acquired historic
significance will be preserved;
Historic features. Generally, deteriorated historic features will be repaired rather than replaced. Where
the severity of deterioration requires replacement, the new feature will match the old in design, color,
texture, and other visual qualities and, where practical, in materials. Replacement of missing features must
be substantiated by documentary, physical, or pictorial evidence;
Historic materials. Historic materials will be protected. Chemical or physical treatments, such as
sandblasting, that cause damage to historic materials will not be used;
Archaeological resources. Significant archaeological resources affected by a proposal will be protected
and preserved to the extent practical. When such resources are disturbed, mitigation measures will be
undertaken;
Differentiate new from old. New additions, exterior alterations, or related new construction will not destroy
historic materials that characterize a property. New work will be differentiated from the old;
Architectural compatibility. New additions, exterior alterations, or related new construction will be
compatible with the resource's massing, size, scale, and architectural features. When retrofitting buildings
or sites to improve accessibility for persons with disabilities, design solutions will not compromise the
architectural integrity of the historic resource;
Preserve the form and integrity of historic resources. New additions and adjacent or related new
construction will be undertaken in such a manner that if removed in the future, the essential form and
integrity of the historic resource and its environment would be unimpaired; and
Hierarchy of compatibility. Exterior alterations and additions will be designed to be compatible primarily
with the original resource, secondarily with adjacent properties, and finally, if located within a historic or
conservation district, with the rest of the district. Where practical, compatibility will be pursued on all three levels.

unique. The shop serves a large geographic area in Portland, Oregon and is
located in the heart of the Pearl District which is at the forefront of Urban
Renewal. As you enter the through the embellished cement façade of this
1920”s brick warehouse you immediately get a shot of local culture.
Unique designer goods are made from mostly repurposed and recycled
materials from local residents and abroad. Polished and stained cement
floors help refine the updated interior. Exposed brick and overhead
ductwork hold the character of the space and create a perfect backdrop for
upscale furniture and one of a kind art pieces. On the main level you can
browse for hours through our custom fabric wall, or get a quick consult
from our professional design staff about 1 piece or an entire space.
Custom rugs, and custom fabrics are part of the exclusive services offered by
this shop. Selected artisans who are especially skilled in their respected
crafts have work studios on the upper levels and hours that they are open to
the public. Level 2 is home to a great café and small lounge open during
store hours and available for live music and other community events.
While you are browsing the showroom don’t be shy about contributing to
our infamous materials library or the “Scrap Lab.” Bring in any discarded and
suitable material you feel could be repurposed and deposit it into its own
material recycle bin. Objects are broken down , reused and re:formed into
their new life as functional art.
