Thanks a lot. Found the "before" photo of the space.



same view.

Very simple but looks like a nice space.

Morde,

May be a bit late for this suggestion; but you may want to consider doing a reveal on the bottom of the drywall for plain walls on your next project.



I noticed all of the plywood structures all used a reveal to separate it from the drywall.

Loving the charcoal tile, I've been attempting to get approval from the board of directors (finance') to change the flooring in my study to a similar situation.

If it does not impose on the rights of your artists, I would be curious to see some pictures once all the artwork is up.

I don't think it would have been a good idea for this space. It's a very typical shitty LA apartment building from the 30s, which means there isn't really a straight wall in the room and the floors and ceilings are uneven. We actually built out the right side of the floating wall to follow the rather severe slant of the building wall. So this looks straight but is actually at about an 85 degree angle:



You can see what we're working with at floor level and the wall below. The wall on the left leans as much as the wall on the right in the image above it. It might have been kind of cool to accentuate more of the imperfections of the building, but a reveal that looked like the image you posted would have had to follow the floor in a way that I'm not sure would have looked good.

Figured the original structure was pretty far out of square, but 15 degrees is impressive.

shog[1].gif The coffee has had little effect today.

I'll leave that up so that you guys have some ammunition for future posts.

Awesome. Liking, what's looks to be fabricated steel stairs.
post #1618 of 2976
I love the look of the bent-steel stairs, but I wonder how practical they are from a slipping standpoint. Maybe no worse than hardwood stairs...
post #1619 of 2976
They're cold roll steel, so they have a nice little texture to them. Superior to marble or terrazzo in that respect. ...

I think the most notable success is the stylistically neutral materials. You could take the interior any direction you'd want, whether it's Victorian furniture and gold-leaf picture frames or Eames chairs and dome lamps. It'd be extremely hard to fuck up the interior space and extremely easy to re-invent it, in the same way that Chareau's Maison de Verre and Koolhaas' Maison Bordeaux are.

Funny you say that as my first thought was I'd like to see furniture/life in the place.
