Upper Left Roasters by FIELDWORK Design & Architecture

Upper Left Roasters is a minimalist space located in Portland, Oregon, designed by FIELDWORK Design & Architecture. The design was inspired by the light and setting: Ladd’s Addition, the historic tree lined neighborhood in which Upper Left is located. Oregon White Oak and salvaged terra cotta, used in minimalist and edited detail, support an air of luminance and warmth. An oak lined skylight greets visitors at the entry, and a wood clad pour-over bar and open kitchen anchor the space. The architectural palette continues with the custom furniture and bars, detailed with terra cotta accents in an abstract reference to the location of Upper Left in an aerial map of Ladd’s Addition.
