For those of you who do know this yet, weaving is the art of creating fabric. This particular weaving studio was designed by Prentiss Architects and is located in San Juan Island, Washington, USA. The clients request was to have a special place that would hold all the weaving tools. In addition to this, the owners also wanted extra accommodation for guests. Here is more from the architects: The solution is a generous main studio space flowing with natural light that provides ample display space while maintaining incremental views of the sound. Off of this space the auxiliary spaces have been defined by the folding back of the exterior shell: to one end a bath and office, to the other a “wet room”. The wet room could be closed off and opened to the exterior in order to allow fumes from dying and drying to not permeate the rest of the studio.Two additional spaces, the sewing room and a guest bedroom appear as an extrusion of the main studio space set into the hill at the back of the studio. A series of sliding panels intended as display panels for weaving projects hide or reveal access to the back rooms and storage cabinets. Have a look at the results and let us know what you think of this unique project.
