What Houzz contributors are saying:

The new studio has two front entrances. One, which leads to the design studio, is less public and tucked behind a sheet of Cor-Ten metal. The other, which leads to the Symbol Audio showroom, is open to the street and combines a pedestrian door and a glass garage door. During events, the garage door can be opened to let the crowd flow onto the front patio.
What looks like two volumes projecting above the roof is actually four, helping to bring plenty of light into the workspaces. Most likely these clerestories face north, so the light coming in is indirect rather than direct light, which would have overheated the interior.
