Galiano Soapworks

Completed 2011  – 650 square feet

We worked on this project in close coordination with the owners to be the home of Galiano Island Soap Works.

Its many key features belie the simple design of the structure and the outcome was an open, warm, and inviting building.

We will work with you or your designer to take advantage of your site’s views, natural light, cooling breezes, and shade areas.

With the barn doors on the front that can be opened on warm days to the pine floors and wain scotting on the inside you get the feeling of entering an old time country store.
