Children's Wing, Southwest Bible Church
WWA designer Mat Stockstill attended the soft opening of the Children's Wing at the Southwest Bible Church in Beaverton, Oregon and took some photos of the nearly completed wing.
We are pleased to see the way it all came together, particularly the multi-purpose room and the rooftop terrace overlooking the Tualatin Valley.
We look forward to seeing it fully completed soon!
St. Luke Construction Complete!
June 4th 2017 St. Luke celebrated the dedication the Narthex new addition and new stair tower. The narthex addition provides a bright welcoming entry and much need social space outside the main sanctuary. Outside the narthex are two plazas providing additional gathering space and a drop off area.
The stair tower addition relocates an existing stairs from a confined hallways to an exterior location allowing both the stairs and hallways to be wide for a welcoming and more engaging environment.
WWA staff truly enjoyed working with St. Luke staff and volunteers as well as the team at Joseph Hughes Construction.
YES FOR AFFORDABLE HOMES!
Thursday, August 11th, 2016 William Wilson Architects and Salazar Architect hosted a fundraiser for the Yes for Affordable Homes campaign in support for the Measure 26-179 that will be on the ballot this November. Jes Larson from the Welcome Home Coalition came to speak on the state of the housing crisis and how this bond can make an impact to help create 1,300 affordable homes.
Both offices recognize and acknowledge that Portland needs critical investments like the $258.4 million affordable housing bond to create safe, permanently affordable housing for thousands of people who live and work in our communities.
“The need for more affordable housing in Portland is clear: Rents are up nearly 15 percent over last year, and low vacancy rates are making it harder to find a place to live. Thousands of Portlanders struggle to find a safe place to sleep at night. Nearly half of families with low incomes—less than $37,000 a year for a family of four—can’t find a home they can afford because we lack 24,000 affordable homes in Portland. Families are forced to move every year because of rent increases, and sometimes more than once, causing children to fall behind in school.”
‘Yes for Affordable Homes is working to make Portland a place everyone can afford to call home. We can create and preserve thousands of affordable homes for those who need them most by voting YES for affordable housing on November 8.’ The event raised over $2,000 to help support the Coalition in getting the word out to voters.
