Vancouver Architects' Studio Sits Below Their House (PHOTOS)

Here at The Huffington Post B.C. we're suckers for incredible architecture and design, so when we came across the newly finished studio space of Vancouver's Scott & Scott Architects, we jumped at the chance to share it with you.

The firm, comprised of husband and wife David and Susan Scott, refurbished a studio on the bottom floor of their East Vancouver home.

While Scott & Scott was launched in 2013, they originally didn't have their own studio, Dezeen reports. So they created one themselves.

The space was previously a butcher shop and then a grocery store, Gessato reports. It was built in 1911.

With a huge window facing the street not only allows for maximum natural light, but it also allows passersby to catch a glimpse of professional architects at work.

The 70 square metre studio is covered with fir supplied from a Vancouver Island sawyer, reports Arch Daily. According to Gessato, the wood was finished with beeswax and Canadian whiskey. To see how it was put together, watch this video.

Scott & Scott has also been making waves since their Vancouver Island Alpine Cabin received the Architizer A+ award, but more on that to come.
