Great news. The building has a nice quirky modern feel that will fit nicely with the avant garde exhibitions by PICA.
It is about time that David Rockwood got some attention for that beautiful house. It is in a somewhat gated portion of the island, so you have to go by foot and walk around a gate. Easy trespass for architects :) He was the Director at the Oregon School of Design prior to the closure. He took the school from a Beaux Arts school into a modern process intense school of art and architecture. Too bad it is not around. Many popular faces in Portland taught there. The only other thing that I understand Rockwood was responsible for in town before he left was the Johnny Sole storefront and interiors. It is across from Rich's Cigar shop. I don't know of anything else built.
A very sensitive renovation to a beautiful building. The SE is booming with creative space - I hope that Washington HS eventually becomes an even bigger catalyst for more incubator type spaces. Well done.
