Happy Labor Day from #rdcHQ! Very soon we will be posting photos and video from our annual Launch Party which was a huge success – however, we want to share our Really Big News that was announced at the event. Point.B Studio and Rural Design Collective Headquarters will be moving to a new location this month! It is a historic building right in the center of Port Orford, Oregon shown below via Google Street View (facing west, Pacific Ocean directly behind).

The new space has a rich history which we will be documenting soon. It was originally built in 1898 during the mining and logging era and is near the Port of Port Orford. This historic photo shows our new building as it appeared in 1925.

And here is another view facing north on Highway 101 from a vintage photograph.

Taken before our pitched roof was added, our building is obscured by others in the foreground.

We are all very excited at #rdcHQ and are looking forward to many more years of incredible art, summer programs and groundbreaking projects in our new space!
