Waechter Architecture has recently unveiled its latest project, Mississippi, which stands in Portland, Oregon as the Pacific Northwest’s first ‘All-Wood’ mixed-use mass timber development. After a decade of meticulous planning and investigation, this cutting-edge building was conceptualized as a testament to sustainable building systems and innovative ‘all-wood’ construction technologies, while also serving as a workspace and platform for fostering new creative dialogues.

Strategically situated on a prominent site in Portland’s vibrant Mississippi Avenue District, the 9,555-square-foot structure represents a harmonious blend of individuality and community, flexibility and permanence, setting a new standard for sustainable and sensitive infill development in the area.
