Phillips Garden Studio Space

December 18, 2008

Phillips Garden studio has a great history .  A gas station transformed into a design studio.  Not only is this space a great example of reuse but the space is downright beautiful.  Ed Burke, the owner of Phillips Garden, designed and built the studio from the ground up (with the help of others).  In 2005 a second floor addition was added.  Below is a photo journey of the studio space and all its transformations…

The original structure for what is now Phillips Garden

beginning the construction

st3
a fish sculpture was built out front by artist (and professor) Jeff Millikan

st4

In time the fish was removed and would be replaced by a new sculpture (you will see below), Jeff Millikan is still a good friend of Phillips Garden and comes has coffee with us from time to time.  We all miss the fish a little…

st5
at one point Phillips was also a coffee shop, now this space is closed to the public but still open for staff use.  It’s awesome.

st6
the downstairs studio…

st7
after the fish we got a new sculpture by Su-Chen Hung, a San Francisco based artist

It is a large bamboo windchime with the beginnings of a blanket of thyme on the ground

In 2005 a second level weeHouse was added to Phillips Garden studio
