The East store-front side of the Hollywood Theatre springs forth in its unique colors

Sophisticated and eclectic, Mary McMurrray's color design for the Alberta Rowhouses shows artistic and distinctive paint colors in keeping with the neighborhood. Before painting, the houses showed no reference to their location. The new colors augment an innovative blend of historic and contemporary elements in the architecture, and bring a warm spirit right out to the street.

Blue ceramic roof tiles were custom-made in Japan and shipped to Portland for installation. However, the monotone white paint scheme did nothing to distinguish the unique architecture. Mary McMurray's new multi-color paint designs define and enhance the textural nuances of business premises.

The Grand Stable and Carriage Building

The Grand Stable and Carriage Building, built in 1885, and its adjoining Annex to the South, built in 1894, are on the National Register of Historic Places.


The cast-iron facade on the older building is now beautifully highlighted with our historically appropriate color design. Its sister annex, with a more contemporary look, blends engagingly in thoughtfully selected hues and tones.


 County Animal Shelter

Multnomah County
The Multnomah County Animal shelter is transformed by paint from a bleak prison to a welcoming home. And we selected the fabric for the awning to link the existing signage color with the new look.
