A Glass Studio In Paradise

May 01, 2014
Glass Yurt 
It was about six months ago that a beautiful and charming Norwegian lady visited us at our house in the mountains of Southern Spain. Her husband Bjorn and her were interested to see our work as they had heard we had some yurts for sale
 
 
Beautiful scenery for the art studioWe sat in the demonstration yurt and spoke about the variety of custom and bespoke work we do for our customers. I explained that we have well equipped workshop and a lot of experience of designing and building custom solutions.
 
We spoke of the importance of quality wood, glue, wood finish and the necessary care and attention that is required to build like a true craftsman. 
 
J, as I will call her here, is an artist and she was looking for a new studio for her high mountain retreat. 
 
At this point we got out the pencil and paper and J drew her dream yurt.  
 
It was like no other design we have made before.  The size, 21 feet and 6 feet walls was not unusual but the 8m of glass in the wall was. 
 
I had been waiting for a project like this for many years! 
  
Glass wallsOne other requirement was the colour be in-keeping with the natural surroundings.  We suggested Sand coloured canvas, the same very standard polyester/cotton cloth we use in our standard yurts but in a beautiful sand colour. 
 
To say they were thrilled with the result was an understatement.  
 
J kindly sent me some photos of the day we pitched it -  The Glass Yurt.aspx
