Block 41 is an event venue designed by Graham Baba Architects of Seattle, WA. This project features Knot & Burl's custom designed and fabricated saddle hide wrapped timbers.

 

The buildings original structural timbers were shredded and decayed. These "corset" wrapped leathers were an elegant and contemporary solution which enhanced the historic architectural elements of the space.  

Collaboratively we designed several leather inlay details including sequenced rolling drink bars.
