The Shift House renovation embodies the key theme of ‘play’, a celebration of a young family’s creativity and curiosity. The client wanted to encourage engagement with the space, ensuring that no room or material was too sacred or off-limits to their children and their friends. The millwork reflects this attitude, focusing on durability and tactility. Douglas fir plywood was used to add a warm, natural feel to the space, it is playful, striking and sophisticated with clean lines and minimal finishes. This collaboration with Measured Architecture, Goodweather Studio, and Powers Construction resulted in a unique and engaging living environment that will stand the test of time.
