Construction begins. Surrounding power lines were shut off because of the scaffolding at the building front, which meant a generator was required to operate equipment. This was how a significant portion of entire construction was completed.
Before the space became Junction 9 Yoga and Pilates Studio:
The building’s original beams shown in the photo had to be replaced in the studio due to building code regulations rendering the old beams to be inadequate as support structures. The original beams were saved and used to construct tables for coffee and lounge station.
Junction 9 Yoga and Pilates Studio roof top overlooking 9th Ave SE in Inglewood. The façade is a screen front, created out of wooden fins that were milled from 100 year old barn wood.
Yoga tubes serving as yoga mat storage. Each one was hand-dipped in paint by the owners in either Black Chalkboard or Deluxe Tiara.
Tea Station. Feature wall is made from off-cuts of the wood fin exterior screen, with clear matte finish. The solid wood counter top of this tea station was built to match the Feature Wall, same finish.
Table shown below is built from the building’s original beams shown right found in the space that is now the Pilates studio.
