The Duniway marks first anniversary with new rooftop space, indoor pool and gym

In downtown Portland, Ore., the 327-guestroom Duniway has completed the finishing touches of its renovation ahead of its first anniversary this June. Punch Architecture was involved in the redesign.

As part of the renovation, the property will open Abigail’s Hideway, a private outdoor space on the 11th floor rooftop; an indoor pool; and a fitness center.

The previously raw space on the 11th floor of The Duniway was transformed to a private guest-only rooftop venue with a Zen atmosphere. Abigail’s Hideway has fire pits and strings of tea lights. Alcoves are furnished with sofas and chairs that are sectioned off by vegetation. On Saturday mornings, Abigail’s Hideaway will be a venue for yoga classes.

The indoor pool and fitness center echo the natural aesthetic of Abigail’s Hideaway with wood touches, greenery sprinkled throughout and natural light streaming in through large windows. The 570 sq. foot pool is flanked by seating. Used for the pool are grey marble and blue accents.

The gym has treadmills, stationary bikes and a designated free weight area.
