Reimagine. Reclaim. Rebuild.
We set out to design Q21 with the same purposeful vision we have for our craft: a commitment to quality, improvement, and a never-ending reverence for the past.
Combining the newest, cleanest, and most desirable aspects of modern architecture, Q21 maintains the beauty and ruggedness of Old Portland within a structure reimagined. What once sheltered the tools of American Industry—manufacturing equipment, haulers, and plenty of good ol’ grease—now stands as a place to call home.
And we didn’t just rebuild. From floor to ceiling, Q21 incorporates materials that have been reclaimed from Portland’s days passed. The concrete tilt panels framing part of the building offered integral support to the original 1970’s structure, and here they remain. The lobby’s furnishings and wall coverings were custom-made from materials salvaged from a local industrial yard. The chandeliers and wood shelves featured in the townhomes and apartments were not bought, but rebuilt by local small businesses.
When we weren’t able to use original materials, we made sure the design honored the building’s industrial heritage.
We’ve built your home with as much care and intention as we would our own. Your front door has been our life’s work, and we couldn’t take more pride in that.
