Text description provided by the architects. La Ximena is a ground floor dwelling deformed by the position of the building’s vertical core. This irregularity is translated into an obvious division of the whole into two sub-spaces –one at the façade and one at the inner courtyard– connected by a corridor of anomalous proportions in which the wet rooms are placed to intentionally emphasize the disproportion between height and width.

Spiritanian collections are an exceptional testimony to the life, traditions, art and beliefs of the people of Central Africa in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. 
The works collected over time by the Spiritans are from Gabon, Congo Brazzaville and Congo Kinshasa, and are very varied. They concern both everyday life and the Sacred, with many masks and sculptures. Among them, major works from the history of African art. Most of these objects, miraculously preserved, had hitherto remained totally unknown both to the general public and to specialists.

I have been working as a space designer for decades, and I realized that relationships with people and everything that is done in the relationships with people are important. And I think that the medium that connects everything that is done in relationships is 'empathy'. I had a long talk when I first met with client. We continued to talk many times after deciding to work together, and client shared many stories. At that time, the nature of his job and patients were the main topics of his stories. I felt that he wanted something of his to be emphasized with another person and also himself empathize something of another

“Ghost Cabin” is a site specific installation located in Seattle’s Chophouse Row. The installation is inspired by the site’s historical past—a frontier homestead whose foundations still lie below the courtyard. By re-imagining the frontier cabin in heavy cedar planks, the artists pay homage to the site’s history and create a focal point for the public space.

Completed in 2018, the installation was commissioned by Liz Dunn of Dunn + Hobbes, developer of Chophouse Row, and Greg Lundgren, a local artist and curator.
