Recently, Propel Studio partners, Nick Mira and Lucas Gray, traveled to Higashi-Matsushima to meet with people from their Smart City Planning group and discuss community rebuilding efforts for those affected by the devastation of the earthquake and Tsunami that hit Japan in 2011. This was an incredible opportunity to learn from a community that is rebuilding in the wake of disaster. We hope to bring lessons learned back to Portland to make our city a more prepared and resilient community.
Thank you to Yuki Takemura, PLACE, Portland Development Commission, Mitsu Yamazaki, We Build Green Cities and the many others who helped make this trip happen!

This recently completed 2BR modern home in SE Portland creates an open living environment that makes the space live much larger than its modest size.

We were happy to assist with this article in The Oregonian and even had a few quotes about the #ADU  boom, permit fee incentives, and the future of ADU's in #Portland

Granny flats, in-law apartments, carriage houses – whatever your preferred nickname for accessory dwelling units, they've been popping up alongside single-family homes all across Portland.

Designing beautiful spaces for people and the planet.Propel Studio Architecture is a community oriented architecture and design studio looking to work with creative, inspiring people and organizations. We look to the triple bottom line – environment, economics, and people – to create unique and inspiring solutions to design problems facing our city.

Propel Studio is a collaboration of multi-disciplinary, creative designers who are passionate about creating sustainable and beautiful architecture. Our designs respond to the context in which we build, integrating our buildings into each unique community, responding to climate, culture, and local materials. We work closely with our clients – listening to your needs, expectations and goals – to develop solutions that address program, context and budget. Propel Studio was founded with the idea that we could give back to our community by providing creative solutions to the built environment. We believe in creating socially responsible architecture that improves the places we live, work and play. With each project our studio explores the intricacies of the program, the unique aspects of each site and climate to develop a strong concept that we follow through the project’s completion. We work at all scales from small pavilions and homes, to neighborhood planning and commercial developments.

Propel Studio is a Portland Architecture firm and strive to make our projects give back to the larger community.

Nick Mira contacted me to bid a landscape design he had executed. He provided me with the design, which was a very modern paver installation, and clear instructions. Nick responded quickly to any questions I had and did a nice job of handing the client and project over once we were chosen. I have worked with quite a few landscape designers, landscape architects, architects, and contractors- Nick and Propel Studio are top notch and I would not hesitate to recommend them in the future.

Nick designed a wonderful addition our home.
An excellent architecture and design blog that has showcased our work and helped us spread awareness of our firm into the international world of architecture. We highly recommend you follow this blog to keep up to date with interesting trends in the design world. If you are an architect or designer you should send them an email with your creative projects and they do a great job highlighting it on their site. Keep up the great work Talkitect!

The staff are amazing and work tirelessly to help architects and firms of all sizes. They have earned our utmost respect and admiration. Stop by the Center for Architecture for First Thursday gallery openings and check for upcoming events on the AIA Portland website.
