Sheetrock has been completed and painting begins this week.  We decided to use Benjamin Moore paint because of their green product offerings.  BM has come out with a line called “Ben” that is a cost affective solution for those interested in using LOW VOC paints.  The Aura line is their top of the line but at $50.00+ per gallon it can add up real fast on a larger project.  Natura is their Zero VOC.  So we decided to use both the Ben and Natura lines in the new studio to try them out and to stay true to out Eco-Friendly studio.  The sheetrock finish inside the studio will now allow us to show our clients several different styles of texturing.  The interior front wall was constructed of a dated slump stone so I decided to have our drywall contractor plaster over the walls to also show an authentic plaster finish. Daylighting was also a challenge in the space as my goal has always been to transform a dingy office space into an inspirational fresh and exciting space to be in.  The rear of the space was the biggest challenge.  Sun Tunnels offer a cost affective way to introduce natural light into a space and that’s exactly what we have done.  Installing two Velux Sun Tunnels within the conference room where our designers select materials for our clients and within a kitchen display that also doubles as a functional kitchenette make the space pleasant to be in.
