Walnut Media Cabinet

This media cabinet is custom designed for a private client. He wanted a piece to hold specific electronics (record player, amp, vinyl records etc) and Judson found the perfect solution to ease of access with magnetic drop down drawers that pull forward. The textured wave pattern was done by CNC machine programmed by Gerald Lauze.

Under the Sea – Children’s Waiting Room

Our latest design and installation was for the Vancouver Coastal Health clinic at the Alan Cashmore Center.

The idea for this play/waiting area was to use very fun and playful imagery in a simplistic design  that would make the area enticing for children in the waiting room, but not so much that they are too distracted when it comes time to leave.

The majority of the work was created using a CNC router to mill out the major shapes and design elements. The fish were printed in vinyl sticker, as well as the bubbles and waves. Almost all of the other elements were pressed with laminate to ensure a long lasting life of vigorous play.

The clinic provides treatment and support for children between 1 & 5 years old, as well as their families. It is a welcome addition to the already fantastic  environment of the clinic.

Mountain Pine beetle Projects

Our studio has been making extensive use of the wood felled by the mountain pine beetle in BC. Starting with 2″x4″s, we’ve been splitting, cutting, sanding, tumbling and polishing this unique material into a variety of shapes and finishes. It has gone into plinths, walls, tables and cabinets; it has been scuffed and finished and made into polished river rocks. You may have seen some of these products at Trade shows like IDS West in Vancouver or 100% Design in Tokyo. If not, take a look and see what can be done!

This Table is like a living sketch that was created as Jud first started working with the Pine Beetle wood.

Recently Completed Work

We’ve just finished a number of projects including two large installations and several smaller furniture items. Check them out below and let us know what you think!

The last project to head out the door: a completely custom storage unit created for a private residence.

Village Storage Unit

Beautiful and functional, each of these houses forms a closed shelving unit.

Also new to our Portfolio: a Play Area commissioned by the Vancouver International Airport. The Whistler Play Area is only the most recent of a number of Children’s Play Areas we have designed and built over the years for YVR, including the Tugboat, Maze and Lighthouse Areas.
This permanent installation gives kids an inspiring place to play and read while waiting for their flight to depart.

Also just installed were some custom pieces designed for BC Premier Gordon Campbell. These pieces make use of wood felled by the Mountain Pine Beetle and its unique blue-gray streaks.
