This place is built by the architects and some carpenters that live in the same area, using materials from their region. The fir they get from a sawyer from the Vancouver Island who is their partner from several years. In case to suit the height and width of the space, three fir logs were cut, milled and selected. The studio is designed by traditional rooted manner but also it was used part of modern tooling. The previous owner infilled the unsalvageable south facing storefront. But our design experts restored it using a single high performance unit, into an area of glass consistent.
By the architects goals the result needed to be a combination of their architecture’s fundamentals and variety uses support over the time. The main priorities were to expand the use of natural light, spread the bound with the neighborhood, use of materials with known providence from the region and acceptance of the lumber based building culture of the region where the studio is located (Pacific Northwest).
Thanks to the architects favor materials and approaches which are obtained over many years of experience, we can feel the warmth of this place. The architects are using a bee’s wax floor finish and instead of solvent, they used Canadian Whiskey. Thanks to this little untraditional method, a special feeling of warmth is felt in the studio.
