Zum Zum / by Michelle Linden

I was first attracted to Bjarko Serra's work (a local Seattle firm) though a magazine article illustrating their own home remodel. Checking out their website, I found this great project. Zum is just the kind of gym/spa that Seattle bobos love. I find that timber framing is a bit overdone in the Pacific Northwest, but I quite like it in this setting... I think it has to do with the fact that the heavy timbers are balanced by the preexisting brick structure. No matter what the reason... I think this project is work a visit. Do you think they'll let me in without joining the gym?
