The Metro Brew Pub provides an authentic Portland experience to visitors of the Oregon Convention Center. The new entertaining space was challenged to provide a quintessential level of comfort and culture that embodies the spirit of Portland, while simultaneously servicing two sides of a demising wall - the public on one side and ticket holding convention goers on the other. A bold new form protrudes from the efficiently redesigned kitchen to create a wrap around bar, which provides a cohesive and welcoming common place for patrons on both sides of the wall to interact. This dynamic center also shapes an elegant variety of sitting and standing situations for visitors to enjoy the company of others with food and beverage. Contrasting finish elements create a balanced harmony between sustainably reclaimed materials with weathered textures and newly crafted elements such as the metal clad walls and artisan furniture.
