William C. Tripp Architect

Central Lutheran Church

Portland, Oregon

An extensive renovation and remodel of an historic Pietro Belluschi church, including ADA, seismic, mechanical and life safety upgrades; reconfiguring office and classroom space; new Narthex; and new light fixtures in the Sanctuary.

“Tripp's solutions are almost invisible unless you know the architecture very well. [He] believes that the renovator ‘must decipher the principles behind the architecture’ and then interpret them as closely as possible.”
