Ritual House of Yoga

Photos by Kevin Scott [enlarge]

Ritual House has opened a modern yoga studio in a century-old masonry building at 608 19th Ave. E. in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The weathered brick storefront opens up to a 1,350-square-foot interior with a 40-person yoga studio, two changing rooms, check-in desk, retail and a space for transitioning between classes.

The long, narrow open plan of was divided with one central organizing structure. The box-like structure creates a check-in desk at the front and storage lockers and bathrooms on the side.

A large sliding wall separates the studio space from the front of the house, with a smaller pilot door that allows latecomers to slip into class without disturbance.

LVL wood rafters were added and lined with LED lighting strips to create a soft glow along the ceiling.

An old concrete wall was scraped and sandblasted to take off a hundred years' worth of plaster and paint.
