Portland-based LRS Architects celebrates growth with open house for newest office in Bend
Portland-based LRS Architects announced it is opening its newest office in Bend, Oregon, with an open house scheduled for June 23.
The new Bend office comes after LRS acquired GL3 Architects in May 2021, and has established a presence there for one year.
LRS's new office is located at 1777 S.W. Chandler Ave., Ste. 270 — the former Bend Bulletin newspaper building. The Bulletin moved its offices in 2020, and still operates in Bend.
Trish Nixon is the president and managing principal of LRS Architects.
"The Bend office's growth is a result of a concerted team effort," Nixon said. "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."
LRS's new Bend office focuses on mixed-use, affordable housing, multifamily housing and commercial, retail and public projects, according to the firm. LRS has been designing projects in Bend since the 1980s, including 69 Newport Mixed-Use, Bunkhouse Hotel-Madres and Subaru of Bend. The firm was originally founded in 1976 in Portland.
Michael Gorman is the co-director of LRS's Bend office.
"Merging with LRS was a brilliant move for GL3, and it has only enhanced our ability to serve the Bend community," Gorman said. "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."
