Spaces We Love: Gover Lane

The Gover Lane Residence by Rossington Architecture is our featured space this month. This home, located in San Carlos, CA was originally a 1960's builder's house that was very compartmentalized but it would be hard to tell that by seeing it today. Rossington Architecture enlarged the footprint by only 8 feet but also had walls removed and altered the ceiling. This opened up the main living spaces and brightened up the home. Now it features a clean mid century inspired design with white walls and beautiful white oak cabinetry. To learn more about Rossington Architecture or the Gover Lane Project please see their website here.

GREENWOOD CONFERENCE TABLE

The Joinery recently finished building a custom conference table for the GreenWood Resources conference room, designed by WGS Interiors. This table is especially interesting as it is built completely out of Pacific Albus, developed by GreenWood Resource. This wood is not a standard wood of The Joinery as it is softer than most hard woods, however for this conference table it was the perfect fit. We used the Pacific Albus cants available thru The Collins Companies and milled them down to create the table. We worked with GreenWood Resource's IT department to create storage areas below with clear wire channels for their components and data management. We also worked with them to find the perfect commercial finish for their table. More photos and some process shots are shown below. For more information on this project or to receive more information on our custom process please contact us here.
