Pinky and the Brain. Krang. Bill Nye the Science Guy. You may remember some of these 90s brain references that came to mind, but wait, we’re not going back in the days. We’re entering The Brain that you’ll find in the Pacific Northwest, in a lush, green forest in Seattle.
The Brain came to life from the creative mind of Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig. The awarded winning designer developed the 14,280 cubic-foot cinematic laboratory for a film maker client. The perfect space to brainstorm and create the best artistic ideas, and relax in a zen, harmonious atmosphere. The cast-in-pace concrete box is an architectural beauty. “Strong yet neutral,” the Brain is enveloped in a neutral background that accentuates the green environment that surrounds the home.
Finely crafted from raw, hot-rolled steel sheets, the interior does not fail. High ceilings and wide glass windows allow the open air feel and natural sunlight. A steel mezzanine provides a second level to escape, while still being able to look down at the large, lower living space.
A fireman’s pole is a nice touch to the loft-like space, adding more personality. Complete with library wall and a dark room, the Brain has it’s own multiple personalities.
As complex and detailed as the human brain itself, The Brain, is one living space that we want to enter.
