CONSTRUCT DESIGN studio
Converted from an existing, two story, two-car garage, this 1200 s.f. structure houses a fabrication shop and design studio. Hardiboard smooth painted panels are used for economy on the base of the building with vertical ipe siding above. These materials are divided by a galvanized sheet steel band that sets the datum for the operable windows. We used marine grade mahogany plywood, commonly used in boat building, to construct eight foot tall fixed window units that protrude out of the facade on the northwest corner.
