Crane Shed Commons
Crane Shed Commons is a four-story flexible office and creative space near Bend’s downtown. Filling a great need for commercial space in the area, this development is the first large speculative office building built in approximately a decade.
Large glass windows throughout capitalize on stunning views of the Deschutes River, Cascade Mountains, and downtown area. Inspired by the industrial character prominent throughout the neighborhood, the building’s façade consists of concrete, brick, and both smooth and ribbed metal accent panels. The grey and deep red of the exterior are inspired by the bark of the ponderosa pine and the region’s stone—basalt.
A third floor rooftop deck provides space to enjoy a cup of coffee on break or casually collaborate. A common lounge with a game table also provides a spot for downtime. Indoor bike parking and adjacent shower/locker facilities promote activity within the building.
