Look at the first photo of the thread and the last few interiors... each corner appears to have a somewhat parabolic hip beam (glulam?) from floor to peak. Wonder if segment from floor to top of walls is primarily decorative, or if entire corner to corner spans are in effect parabolic arches.....

Aha -- I hadn't noticed that; the curve is apparent at least in the photo where it casts curved shadows on the block walls. Because the piece seems to be continuous, I would suppose that the floor supports the bottom end of the bent.

This must be the piece(s) that AJF refers to. Perhaps this is Henken's cathedral dedicated to St Cecilia . . . ?

More useful text . . .

Still trying to figure out this building. Wouldn't a plan be great to have ?

It appears that a major wing is attached to the studio at 45ยบ; its terminus can be seen at left, second photo:

It appears that the windowless wall on the left of the exterior photo is the windowless wall on the right side of the interior shot.

An extension of the wing, a bump-out at second level supported by posts and a beam, is perhaps an addition ? The support seems a bit ad hoc. Other
photos we've seen show a vertical unit with door at ground level, attached to the end of this structure. Perhaps no other means of egress was practicable ?
