The River’s Edge Hotel, situated between the lush Willamette riverfront and rolling hills of Portland, is a unique close-in getaway for locals and visitors. SERA designed a renovation of the interiors, including a refresh of the lobby, restaurant and 100 guest rooms. The waterfront locale inspired SERA to reimagine the property as a luxe urban resort, utilizing bold colors, high contrast, saturated patterns, and a nod to timeless textures to activate and enliven the space. The transformation simplifies the design, creating an impactful, elegant guest experience.
Similarly, the design of the restaurant takes visual cues from the surrounding nautical location. SERA developed a minimalist palette of darker, saturated colors with shiplap wood and rope details to create an intimate, moody dining experience.
Sustainable features include low VOC materials and LED lighting. In addition, the design draws from an ever-present biophilic inspiration with natural materials, biophilic patterns and large, over-scale botanicals.
