During this project, each member of the studio inherited a log gathered from a site in Vermont. The brief was then to design a resting place somehow derived from the original log. Early stages of the assignment involved study and documentation of the log’s formal and abstract properties before turning to an occupiable scale.

Drawing on the complex texture of my log’s surface and its highly variable sections, this resting place is created from carved panels that synchronize at various points to create seats and lounges. The size and arrangement of its various positions allow for the place to be occupied by individuals or groups .
