The flats is an urban housing tower to be located next to the most prominent figure in Portland’s skyline, Pietro Belluschi and SOM’s US Bancorp Tower aka. Big Pink. During the day it defers importance to Big Pink, but at night when the office tower has emptied and residents return home The Flats comes to life. Each unit is equipped with an occupancy sensor that activates an LED panel on the façade below giving the tower a dynamic and active presence in the night sky.
