Lake Place Mixed-Use Building

Bend, Oregon

completed 2018

12,617 sq ft

Project Description


Ascent collaborated with San Francisco’s McGriff Architects to design The Lake Place Mixed-Use Building, ideally located between The Old Mill District and Downtown Bend. Inspired by the Pilot Butte Inn with its gabled roofs and stone base, this building hints to a slice of Bend’s history.

Our part of the collaboration included design development, construction documents, permitting, and construction administration.

Louvered Staircase

One of the unique design features of the Lake Place Mixed-Use Building is the louvered stairwell. The four-story staircase is a true focal point, drawing attention toward the building’s vertical mid-line. In the evenings, the staircase lighting glows through the parallel slats, creating a lantern-like effect .

Retail, rental, and roof deck

The building includes a main-floor retail space, two floors of short-term rentals, and a fourth-floor covered deck reserved for the short-term residents.
