This post and beam studio, built from Douglas fir beams harvested from the Coulson property, does not disappoint. The 42-inch overhangs channel runoff from the 900-square-foot sod roof along recycled log boom chains, which trickle feed potted bamboo at the entrance.
A salvaged curving iron staircase provides access to the green roof while also adding an organic touch to the building. The high-ceiling living room, with its Douglas fir beams and floor to ceiling windows, connects you to nature while also making you feel warm and comfortable.
Vertical grain bamboo cabinets, black granite countertops, and terrazzo flooring tie the kitchen into the studio’s West Coast Japanese vibe. Gelinas Carr created custom shoji screens that lead into the studio’s cozy bedroom wing. Wood flooring and American Clay walls complement the Douglas fir beams.
