LRS Architects, a firm that values innovation, creativity, and collaboration, is excited to announce a scheduled open house on June 23, 2022 at 4:00 pm in the firm’s newest office in Bend, Oregon. The firm has grown substantially in the Bend area since acquiring GL3 Architects in May 2021. The Bend office focuses on mixed-use, affordable housing, multifamily housing, retail, commercial, and public projects.
“The Bend office’s growth is a result of a concerted team effort,” said Trish Nixon, President and Managing Principal of LRS Architects, Inc. “We’re excited to showcase the new office space during our open house on June 23 and meet community members and partners as we continue to learn about the culture of the area and how we can serve its present and future needs.
The new office is at 1777 SW Chandler, Suite #270, located in The Quad, the former home of the Bend Bulletin. It features a warm, naturally lit space that aligns with the firm’s goal of fostering a collaborative, active, and energetic environment. The new location also allows for future growth without changing locations.
“Merging with LRS was a brilliant move for GL3, and it has only enhanced our ability to serve the Bend community,” said Mike Gorman, co-Director of LRS’s Bend Office. “As we celebrate our one-year anniversary, the open house will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase our new space and our design philosophy to many influential names in Bend.”
Gorman, along with co-Director Jim Landin has been serving the Central Oregon market for over 20 years. LRS has designed mixed-use and multifamily housing projects in Bend since the late 80’s. Some notable projects include: Touchmark Senior Living, 69 Newport Mixed-Use, Canal Commons Affordable Housing, Subaru of Bend, 515 Century Mixed-Use, Solis @ Petrosa Multifamily, and Bunkhouse Hotel-Madras.
