Luxury Meets Landscape

Hacker Architects incorporates Oregon’s natural environment into ōkta restaurant

(George Barberis)

When you enter ōkta, a restaurant in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, a subdued sense of luxury is palpable. Hand-troweled plaster walls, fringed rugs, and a detailed ceiling create a dining room rich in texture. Hacker Architects approached the design of the 9,000-square-foot space by bridging high-end hospitality with Oregon’s natural environment.

While creams and light neutrals are featured on the ground floor dining space, the lower level houses a 24-seat cellar bar and wine library that opts for cozy, dark tones like brown leather and burnt sugar-glazed terra-cotta tiles. Through material and color choices, Hacker crafts an ode to the state’s forested lands.
