First Thursday @ Secter

We had a great event last Thursday for our grand opening at Valley Rowe/Collective 815. Check out a few of the snapshots from that evening:



Thank you to everybody who made it out last week to meet us! We look forward to hosting the next one.

We’re moving offices!

A new year marks new opportunities for growth. This year, we’re particularly excited because we’re moving offices!

After three and a half years on the Mezzanine in the Woodlark building on SW 9th and Alder, we’re ready for a bigger change than ever. Though we’re feeling slightly crushed that we’ll no longer be right across downtown’s food cart mecca, our new space is located at 815 NW Glisan Street in the heart of the Pearl District where it is surrounded by galleries, art, and local flavor!

We’ll be sharing the new space with a studio collective, comprised of Portland-based artists Pate Gonzalez and Kevin Van Driesche, whose art gallery Collective 815 occupies the floor directly below our new office. Their artworks are on display there, as well as a meticulously curated collection of local wares from Portland jewelry designers, vintage furniture and apparel, handcrafted gifts, and artisan-designed objects.

Handcrafted gifts, artisan designed objects, local wares.

There is definitely a sense of a “coming together” in this new move. The shared space represents an integration of different creative visions, outlets, and sources, all of which, we’re sure, will fuel not only our work in landscape design, but Pate and Kevin’s creative projects as well. We believe this symbolic partnership will act and serve as mutual inspiration and incentive to do the best possible work we can. We are so excited to become a part of this stimulating and collaborative environment.

Stay tuned for updates on our move. We’ll be taking plenty of pictures of the process and getting familiar with the new space. Once we’re all moved in, we’d love to have you pop in and say hello!

Save the date: please join us forĀ  our official opening on the first Thursday of Feb. 7 from 5-9 pm.
