    • The Architekton tenant improvement was conceived to be a catalyst use within the Farmer Studios project. Occupying approximately 9,000 sf, the concept was to leave as much of the building exposed as a didactic and infrastructural tool for the studio. Organized along a longitudinal "information/product wall," the studio is an open plan with support offices on the other side. Stacked conference rooms and entry anchor the north end of the facility while kitchen, shop and break areas occur at the south end. Off the shelf materials are used throughout with minimal embellishments, complementing the building's structure of rusted steel and concrete masonry. Fabric duct sox and integral manifolded air distribution creatively add to the studio's raw aesthetic. Unistrut is used throughout for guardrails, furniture systems and sliding crit panels allowing for easy modification. The design easily allows for evolutionary modifications over time to respond to changes in both technology and studio organizational needs.
