Newport Terrace Luxury Apartments

Bend, Oregon


completed 2016

9,240 sq ft

8 units

Project Description

When the owner of this downtown building asked Ascent to convert some office space into apartments, we were excited for the challenge of transforming the space without losing the building’s character. The second-floor space (upstairs from Bad Wolf Bakery & Bistro) already included industrial features, such as concrete floors and exposed beams. Through our design, we used the existing shell and created eight unique apartments, each with its own efficient layout and floor plan. To tie in with the industrial feel of the space, we incorporated interior design features such as barn-style doors, industrial-style light fixtures, subway tile for the kitchen backsplashes, and black trim. Additionally, we kept the project budget-friendly by using existing windows, beams, and flooring.


New design features, such as a sliding barn doors, add to the style of the apartments. Existing design features, like the windows, were kept in tact to tie the old space into the new space and help control project costs.

Living and Kitchen Space

For one of the units, we were able to create an open concept between the living and kitchen space. Concrete floors and exposed beams are part of the industrial style chosen for these luxury apartments.


Efficient layouts were key to the success of these apartments. The bathrooms were fitted with industrial-style features, and were laid out so that each bathroom also houses the apartment’s washer and dryer.

Another Kitchen Layout

Since each of the apartments had its own sizing and spacing available, we designed each apartment to be different. This is one of the unique kitchen layouts we designed.
