CHASE JARVIS PHOTOGRAPHY
Part think-tank, part media lab, the new space for Chase Jarvis Photography is an environment to test new ideas and host events. The design implementations are meant to be invisible, allowing the grittiness of the industrial shell to be the experience. The 6,000 square foot space includes an existing loft, a kitchen and bathrooms. A new wall splits the space into two large rooms of a more appropriate scale. A 20 foot long by 10 foot tall opening, located in the demising wall, allows the spaces to combine. Large rolling walls close the opening when media events are taking place. In addition to acoustic and visual separation, the wall resolves a number of awkward geometries from previous remodels. Through strategic and subtle moves, the architecture becomes the backdrop for people, creativity and celebration.
