This design-build, 14,000 square foot bi-level retail building is a blend of glue laminated and conventional wood framing. The center portion of the building boasts exposed structural skeleton made of glue-laminated wood topped by a tongue & groove timber deck system. The high vaulted ceiling creates an immediate feeling of rugged openness.
The balance of the building implements traditional wood framing sheathed by the latest technology in wood panels. Heating and cooling are delivered by a forced air system that incorporates some of the exposed ductwork into the interior design.
The geometry of the arched gables (inspired by local architecture) are carried throughout the building both in structure and product display areas.
