Our Foodography project is a 2,500 sf photography studio and office space for a company called Columbia Products Studio, located in a former factory and landmarked building.
The studio specializes in food and kitchen modeling photography. At the heart of the space is a large kitchen designed for food photography, with restaurant-grade equipment and appliances. A polished concrete counter island with a built-in gas cooktop is ideal for how-to's and demo shoots.
Natural light floods the studio thanks to expansive historical windows framed in thin metal profiles. The industrial aesthetic of the steel windows inspired the raw steel kitchen cladding and custom cut steel angles used for the cabinet door pulls. An oversized shelf clad in reclaimed barn wood serves as a backdrop for the kitchen. The grey weathered wood conceals LED lights as well as a narrow profile exhaust fan above a large commercial range.
The 11 feet high ceilings feature original tin patterned tiles and allow light to penetrate deeply into the middle of the space. Raw white oak chevron flooring adds texture and character throughout the studio. Overall the materials used reinforce the industrial aesthetics and attention to detail in response to the rich patina of the landmark building.
