The Hudson

Sustainable Mixed-use Office Building Uses Wood to Advance Live/Work/Play Philosophy

As the first newly constructed office building in recent memory in downtown Vancouver, Washington, the Hudson serves as bridge between the community’s rich history and promising future.

The building is open and airy, with 15’ ceilings, custom 2×4 decking, extensive use of wood including exposed glued-laminated timber columns and beams.

Sustainable design was a key project goal, with a target of LEED Gold for the core and shell, and Four Green Globes awarded in Sustainable Interiors. Sustainable elements include an efficient variable refrigerant flow system, high-performance window glazing, and combinations of LED and natural daylighting.
