rjmstudio was commissioned to design and build a custom loft that provides artist's studio work space in addition, providing access to mechanical areas within an existing residential loft building.
Design of the Loft platform embraces both structural and economic principals; a primary structural element composed of a coupled Douglas fir beam spanning just over twelve feet and joined with exposed carriage bolts in a zig zag 'sewing' formation that provides rigidity.
The guardrail posts are claw like in appearance, they taper slightly to reflect a minimal distortion of scale with tempered glass framed top and bottom all Fabricated from local poplar wood and harmonized with natural finishes.
