This project creates a crisp, modern, intimate, and artistic shop interior in a former paint store. With a very small budget, the owner requested that cost, practicality, creativity, and common sense be the driving forces in the design process.  

A relatively large shop interior, the design uses perceptual reduction by means of color and value contrasts. Finish materials had to be very low cost, yet present the crisp modernity of an avant guard shop. Creative use is made of corrugated galvanized metal ceiling panels, plain birch plywood, flat galvanized sheet metal cabinet surfaces, and simple industrial type pendant light fixtures. The floor, a uniform plane of neutral-tone commercial carpet, ties together the overall design. Color is added to the space on the remaining gypsum wallboard surfaces, based on simple, contemporary selections.
