Crane Building Penthouse

Located within the urban core of Portland, Oregon, this 7th floor 2500 SF penthouse sits atop the historic Crane Building, a brick warehouse built in 1909. It has established views of the city, bridges and west hills but its historic status restricted any changes to the exterior. Working within the constraints of the existing building shell, GS Architects aimed to create an “urban refuge”, that provided a personal retreat for the husband and wife owners with the option to entertain on occasion.

how do you install cedar t&g onto the ceiling?

The t&g is nailed through the tongues just as a floor is installed. There are furring strips at 24" on center that they are nailed too.

I believe that the furnishings were purchased through Design Within Reach. I would suggest that you check out their website directly. Thanks
