Venice, California 2010
The industrial and sometimes raw building materials are contrasted and complimented by natural materials. The evolution or progression of the materials from one state to the next is widely evidenced throughout. Raw steel beams are contrasted with polished steel accents and walnut logs for the fire are contrasted with hand-built cabinetry and walls finished with the same species. The floating cabinetry and furniture convey weightlessness amidst the grounding elements of Iron, concrete and heavy woods. Depth and drama contrast sea and sky.
