The materiality of the studio directly juxtaposes the public-private concept by using a translucent material (glass) to enclose the most private program being the living space, and a completely opaque material (concrete) for those spaces which are of public domain. Wood is then used as a means to blend both. The use of all materials is directly appreciated from the exterior , providing a contrasting front facade from that of the local area.
Camera Obscura is situated in a dynamic pedestrian space featuring a Farmers Market that stretches along historic Ballard Avenue. Open year round, hundreds of vendors line in the middle and edges of the street. Sounds, tastes, and smells are hard to ignore.
Like no other medium in the area, the studio becomes an avenue to refresh its surroundings.
