The build-out of the Nau International flagship retail store in Portland’s Pearl District was brought forward with NAU International partner, ENGIN Creative, a Portland-based creative agency for the store’s classic and contemporary environment. The palette combines both raw materials and minimal treatments- FSC-Certified White Oak, FSC-certified white laminate, hot rolled steel, and water-based clear finishes, all of which were carefully considered to fit NAU’s design towards recycled materials. With long lead times and a tight schedule, Colas Construction worked carefully with our local partners and vendors to create all custom fixtures and delivered the project on time and under budget. The finished project demonstrates Nau’s vision of an intentional balance between style and the environment.
