PORTLAND, Ore. April 2, 2013 – Cardboard Castle Inc (www.cardboardcastle.com), a motion graphics studio specializing in imaginative, high-end visual content, plans to make a North Albina building its new home.
Cardboard Castle owners Cooper and Alicia Johnson recently purchased 2,600 square feet of industrial space at 4703-4707 N Albina Avenue. The existing property, originally built in 1929, is currently being renovated and developed into a 3,100-square-foot space to serve as the new office for the motion graphics studio, which currently operates in SE Portland.
Cardboard Castle is working with local design-build firm Reworks Inc. to renovate the building and transform it into a creative space for the rapidly growing studio, which produces commercials, high-end 3D, and visual effects for companies such as Microsoft, Nike, Staples, Food Network, Lenovo, and DirecTV. The extensive build-out will include adding a mezzanine that will house an edit bay, server room, and sound booth, enabling Cardboard Castle to accommodate more of their production needs. The project is aiming for a summer 2013 completion.
“We’re excited to establish roots in this great neighborhood and show our long-term commitment to this vibrant and diverse community,” said Alicia Johnson, Director of Operations for Cardboard Castle. “As supporters of the arts and local business, we look forward to collaborating with Portland artists and craftspeople on our new space.”
