Sunlight spills through an opening in the well of one of three round circular skylights during framing.
Ground Floor Gutted
Existing interior elements demolished as part of the complete overhaul. The new design began to take shape with the sun pouring in through a circular skylight, and trenching for new plumbing taking place.
Steel Stair Railings
The railings were water jet cut with a custom pattern MacCracken Architects designed to echo the client's climbing bougainvillea. Here, the panels arrive on a flatbed shortly before being craned into place.
The center blade of 3/4" steel which provides support for the rest of the stair is lowered into place.
Railings welded into place while supported by the crane.
Angled drums to support the circular skylights emerging on the roof deck.
Plyboo panels are installed. Each panel has been routed with perforations and grooves, giving a linear visual texture to the material as well as improving the acoustics in the space.
The angles of the ceiling and floor planes expand and contract as one moves through the space. Minimal, recessed lights are flush with the panels, and may be pivoted to cast light on changing artwork.
