Constructed with straw bales, the Sweet Yoga Studio provides relaxing
and enlightening experiences for those who practice yoga within its
walls. With the goals of our clients at the forefront of the
design, we created a simple, rich space that allows people to relieve
their stress through the use of Svaroopa® style yoga.
Using a post and beam structure combined with the insulating value of
straw bales, we worked with the clients to reduce the environmental
impact of the structure to the bare minimum. By using rapidly
renewable resources (straw) rather than other more energy intensive
materials while simultaneously reducing the volume of lumber
required to build the structure (and repurposing an existing out
building) we not only put less of a demand on our natural resources,
but we also used what was already there.
