KEEN’s New, Sustainably Designed, Headquarters

The Grand Opening

This year we have been fortunate to be included in many sustainable retail projects.  One of the most recent projects has been KEEN Footwear’s new Headquarters and garage retail store, located in the Pearl District of Portland Oregon. Over the past few months we have been working with CDS Inc. and McNinch Construction to source materials to create a unique interior that fit KEEN’s vision of sustainable  building design.  In the design of their new headquarters and retail space KEEN’s goal was to recycle and reuse as much building material as possible. With this sustainable outlook in mind, CDS and McNinch Construction came to us looking for authentic, local, northwest barn siding and other materials to create a unique sustainable interior. Below are some photos we would like to share with you of the designer’s creative reuse of these raw materials!

Fire Door Table

McNinch Construction used salvaged fire doors to create a fabulous display table for KEEN products.

McNinch created this sliding barn door using wood from a 100 year old barn in Corvallis that our crews worked to salvage.  The vintage barn door trucks are salvaged as well.

Register Counter

CDS built these clever cantilevered register counters, using barn wood and KEEN shoe soles.

It’s been rewarding for all of the Aurora Mills staff to see a substantial amount of our salvaged materials transformed into one of a kind showroom pieces! We are proud to be part of a collaboration of dedicated and creative people who believe in the reclaim, reuse and re-purpose ethic. Cheers to CDS Inc., McNinch Construction, and KEEN on their hard work, the showroom looks great!
