“We shape our buildings; thereafter, they shape us.”

— Winston Churchill

With the 1000 Wall project in Downtown Bend, Ore., Redside took one of the city’s oldest and most familiar structures – the JC Penney Galleria built in 1928 – and transformed it from an eclectic, undervalued facility into an award-winning, historically preserved, LEED Silver building anchored by Patagonia and local advertising firm TBD. 1000 Wall underwent a facelift, including a new brick and wood façade and addition of steel canopies and contemporary signage. Redside also uncovered the original wood floors, exposed building elements and structure buried under decades of remodeling and created a grand staircase connecting the mezzanine to the second floor. In addition to the installation of a highly efficient heating and cooling system, occupancy-sensor lighting and skylights, the 86-year-old building marked the first U.S. commercial application of the Nest Learning Thermostat, which learns tenants’ behaviors and preferences and automatically adjusts office temperatures accordingly.
