The project was designed by HA+MA, a local studio led by Eric Hawkins and Scrap Marshall.
The overall design intent was “to craft a structure that utilises and exploits its surrounding and immediate environment” while also offering a flexible interior space, the architects said.
The 2,000-square-foot (186-square-metre) building is composed of two rectangular volumes. One serves as the main structure for teaching and relaxation, while the other holds restrooms. The volumes are situated around a garden with a lone pine tree.
“The building is composed around a courtyard garden, creating quiet, naturally ventilated spaces,” the studio said.
The exterior consists of concrete and Alaskan cedar, along with Petersen bricks that were handmade in Denmark. The structural system comprises four steel posts and glue-laminated beams.
“All the hidden joints and connections were custom designed and fabricated by us in LA,” the architects noted.
Large stretches of glass usher in daylight and provide a strong connection to the outdoor environment.
A large pivot door marks the formal entrance, while another side of the building has sliding doors that enable the interior to merge with a patio.
“A series of glass planes open up and slide away, blurring the boundaries between the sheltered interior and the surrounding landscape,” the team said.
