Deschutes River Airfield

Project Desciption

The Deschutes River Airfield is an 8,600 sf facility, located in eastern Oregon. The overarching project entails the development of 150 acres situated in the semi-arid lands east of the Tualatin Mountains.

Divided into two phases, the first phase involves the development of a hangar composed of corten steel and contrasting light wood siding. In addition to the requisite support space for flight planning and airplane maintenance, the hangar provides a residential space and amenities for the owners and pilots including a lounge, office, and kitchen.

The second phase calls for additional property development entailing a primary residence, guest house, and additional flight support facilities.
