Page Through This PNW Architecture Firm’s Statement-Making Designs


Cover of Skylab architecture firm's book "Skylab: The Nature of Buildings."

Founded in 1999, Portland-based Skylab has emerged as one of the most progressive architecture and design studios in the region. The firm has been steadily building their cachet with dynamic, statement-making buildings in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Now, Skylab celebrates a new milestone with the release of their first monograph.

Skylab: The Nature of Buildings presents more than two decades of the firm’s work, including a range of private residences built for leading creatives as well as public projects such as music venues, resorts and civic works like Portland’s Columbia Building. All the projects meditate on the theme of regeneration, which Skylab founder Jeff Kovel describes as “our North Star and the legacy of our work, defined by designing with nature as a partner, seeking to rebalance the relationship with land, time and people.”
