New & Noteworthy

Thomas Corr Joins the Team!

Please help us give an extra special welcome to our newest employee, Thomas Corr!  Thomas graduated from the University of Idaho for both his Bachelor and Masters degrees, and the the opportunity to design and create the spaces that we experience day to day is what initially drew him to study architecture in the first place.

Some fun facts about Thomas are that he was apart of a Design Build studio at the University of Idaho where his class constructed an award-winning outdoor space for Hat Ranch Winery in Caldwell, ID (how cool is that), and lastly that he just recently became a doggie dad to a tiny puppy named Banks!

We are so excited to have Thomas working with us, and we are eager to see what his future at Milbrandt will bring.  Welcome aboard! 🙂

17th Avenue Apartments

Introducing the 17th Avenue Apartment building in Portland, OR!  This quaint little 19 unit, 4-story building is located in the heart of one of Portland’s most historical neighborhoods.  Lots of time, thought, and effort went into the process our architects took to draft this building, which can be seen in the historical reference guide below.  While construction for the 17th avenue apartments isn’t scheduled for later this year, the permits have been approved!  The style and vibe of this project was to incorporate significant buildings into the design, that way a new building going up in this specific neighborhood would not stick out like a sore thumb.  The 17th and couch neighborhood has a strict building code, which Milbrandt architects had to adhere to in the initial design process.  Sticking to said code allows a new building to feel right at home when built, and thus encourage the culture of what it means to live on 17th Ave.
