Warehouse Reconfiguration

A very cool studio in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood that was once an old shoe parts warehouse. It's the work of Olson Kundig Architects. Everything this firm puts out is kickass. The space is multifunctional and can be used as a studio, a gallery space or for entertaining.

All the qualities of a classic warehouse space with amount of volume and the great natural lighting. Here's where they take it a step further. They designed these sweet sliding and pivoting panels that divide the space but also serve as a backdrop to display some of the artwork. It's very unique the way it can transform and reconfigure the overall feel of the space in no time at all.

This is just a badass table. 26' of Douglas Fir with steel forged wheels custom designed by the architect. All locally produced and manufactured. It's sweet.
