Kushner Studio’s Flatiron 1BR-to-duplex conversion – Bunkhouse Plank® Oak

This jewelbox of an addition expanded upon a prior design-build project of one of their clients and converted a high design 1BR into a duplex. The client had fantasies of a cabin in Maine & the exquisiteness of its details play out. The richness of materials masks some of the more complex and pedestrian aspects of modern living (hidden high end Sony systems, flatscreens & stoves). All cabinetry was custom produced by the firm’s in-house contracting firm.

Blue Sky Grille, Pepsi Center, Denver, CO – Bunkhouse Plank® Oak

The Blue Sky Grill is not just another arena sports bar. Far from it. In fact, once you’ve stepped into the Blue Sky Grill you could be in an upscale mountain lodge far from anywhere. The restaurant is modeled after Yellowstone National Park’s Old Faithful Lodge and Pepsi Center owner Stan Kroenke’s own Q Creek Ranch in Wyoming. The Blue Sky Grill is open to the general public as well as ticketholders before and after events. HOK Sport + Venue + Event (now Populous™), the architecture firm that designed the Pepsi Center, also piloted the design of the Blue Sky Grill.

“When we were building it, we kept coming back to the words ‘lodge’ and ‘comfortable. We wanted it to be a place where you want to hang out.” – Bill Pruter, Pepsi Center VP of arena development (Rocky Mountain News, 02.02.02)

“As a photographer, I often find myself in situations that call for me to use my talents to improve upon the subject matter. In this situation I was challenged to capture the essence of the Blue Sky Grill without subtracting from it. My assistant and I spent a total of 38 hours to shoot nine 4×5 color images. This is more than double our average time per image. A myriad of detail-oriented work was required on our end so as not to over- or under-light, and to accurately capture the details contributed by the many different elements. The ambiance created is from the total effect of the reclaimed woods, lighting, furnishings and artwork to the tiniest of details; you are transported to a space that rivals any western-style mountain lodge. It was a welcomed challenge to precisely document this awesome space.” – Jackie Shumaker, owner of Jackie Shumaker Photography.

Galyan’s is the most unique, rapidly growing sporting goods store in the world. They are passionate about sports and the outdoors, and they offer the best merchandise from top brands.
