the goal

Amy Robinson, the owner of 3 Oms Yoga Studio, contacted us in the summer of 2015 becaus she was looking for a building to purchase. Our initial role was to act as a consultant, looking at design feasibility, buildability and the cost of remodeling. Amy found the old Nordstroms space on Cornwall and she knew she’d found the perfect spot.

project details

As with many downtown buildings, the new 3 Oms space on Cornwall has had many uses. Most recently it was used as a call center, housing a number of super small office spaces and space for rows and rows of desks! The first order of business was to remove those office spaces, creating two large yoga studios and a reception area. In addition, we built out the lounge area, increasing the overall footprint of the space. I’m pretty sure the lounge area is going to be very popular with 3 Oms clients, it’s a beautiful space. We also added two bathrooms, two massage studios (which will be used by Verita Massage) and locker room.

  • The reception desk was designed and built by Arthur Johnson of Art Works Construction,  out of reclaimed fir, Paperstone and reclaimed bowling alley slabs.
  • Armadillo Design Lab was the building designer for this project.
  • Erik and Brandon at Ashley Vance Engineering did some tricky problem solving to build the lounge area.
  • The existing white oak floors were refinished by Robbins Hardwoods.
  • The beautiful, existing stained glass windows were saved and incorporated into the design plan.
  • Marmoleum flooring was used in the bathrooms and locker room area. Marmoleum is a natural linoleum material that is bio-based, highly durable, non-toxic and anti microbial.
  • Cork flooring was used in the massage studios. It’s non-toxic, moisture resistant, thermally insulating and is made from renewable sources.
