Existing electrical, fire protection, and mechanical infrastructure, were maintained. To reduce costs and construction waste, numerous materials were reclaimed and re-purposed from the existing space such as cedar framing, steel, and plywood.

The existing concrete floor was sealed and the overhead concrete structure was exposed to retrieve a patina and serve as a counterpoint to the minimalistic insertions of white volumes clad in glass and steel. The cedar framing was milled and incorporated into a linear glass partition used to define the smaller programmatic elements from the main studio area.

Located at the foliage level of the surrounding trees, on the second level, and surrounded by three sides of glazing, daylight is utilized as the main source of lighting year round.
