Corvallis Museum

Located in downtown Corvallis, opposite a 125-year-old general store and the former territorial capital of Oregon, the 19,000 sf museum asserts a contemporary presence, while respectfully complementing these sites through massing, material and detail. The two-story museum and courtyard project included 6 exhibit rooms, 1 educational/event room, storage, artifact processing station, administrative offices, conference room, and a gift shop. There were many architectural touches selected to enhance the visitors experience, including a ceiling designed specifically to lead the viewer’s eye throughout the exhibit spaces resulting in slanted, dissecting lines and angles rather than standard 90-degree angles. The building was LEED Silver Certified to honor sustainability goals and also to provide the most efficient systems necessary for the preservation of the historical objects. The Corvallis Museum was awarded First Place in the DJC Top Projects 2021 Hospitality Award.
