WRNS Studio’s goal is to “…engage clients to craft buildings that tell their own story.” Perforated aluminum panels clad the upper portion of the building, echoing adjacent tree canopies. The flowing theme descends to the sidewalk with custom louvred glass panels, an easy choice for effortless maintenance against outdoor elements. The privacy gained still allows ample light to filter in, while the quiet vitality of the pattern is inherent in its kiln-cast depths.
