While at Hacker Architects, Amanda Petretti served as Planner and Project Manager for a feasibility study of the Lents Town Center in east Portland. Her research provided holistic analyses of a neighborhood in transition and included: urban design concepts; market & financial analysis; development options; traffic, transit and parking demand management. The study successfully promoted revitalization and increased the momentum for change while respecting the history of Lents and advocating the retention of quality buildings.


Bancroft Feasibility Study

A feasibility study for the adaptive reuse of a mixed-use building near Portland’s South Waterfront. The layout provides a new location for the client’s office along with private office spaces to be individually leased. There is secured bike parking and additional storage for tenants in an accessory structure adjacent to the main building. The lower level houses two one-bedroom apartments at street level.

R&H Facade Study

We worked with R&H Construction on a quick study to reimagine the exterior of their existing two-story office building in Portland’s Goose Hollow District. With modest materials and budget, we brought their 1980’s corporate exterior into the 21st century. A bold color palette traces the authentic lines of the original 1920’s building and highlights the unassuming entry with the iconic R&H bright red brand.
