Salmon Bay Terminals is a project to convert an existing warehouse space on Salmon Bay into two production distilleries run by local favorites, Sound Spirits and Captive Spirits. The minimal, industrial design highlights the raw character of the existing space, with a new polished and stained concrete floor contrasting the whitewashed exposed structure. We can't wait to share the completed Salmon Bay Terminals project with you!
After a discussion with a client today, I fell down the internet rabbit hole looking at cool benches online. Benches (and tables) are such an interesting form, as there is nothing so simple, yet done well they can be absolutely gorgeous.
My personal favorite is the individu bench (third from the top), which can be modified per your individual needs.
Bike Art /
After my first bike ride of the spring, I was thinking about how beautiful bikes have become. Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks so!
Designed by architect Joan Sandoval, this Barcelona bike shops has a minimal design (with enough room to test drive the bikes), letting the bikes themselves be the decoration.
Anyone who follows this blog (is there anyone still out there?!?!) has probably noticed that it has been a while since I last posted...
Since my last post, I've merged practices with Henry Walters of Drome Design Studio to form atelier drome, llp. We're pretty excited about our merger and feel blessed to be busy! But, it has been too long since this blog has been active, so we're going to try and make an effort to reactivate the blog. This blog has meant a lot to me, a source of inspiration when I was working in jobs feeling less than inspired... a means of connecting to friends and new acquaintances across the globe... and now I hope to take this blog with me on a new journey with my new company.
Even though this post doesn't have any architectural photos... I can't think of a better product to summarize my aesthetic. When I first saw this bench (is that what you'd call it?) on shoebox dwelling, I actually gasped. I absolutely love the minimal design with the surprise inside.
