The summer of 2011, Skillful Means installed bales and lathing for the Teen Center in Riverbank, California. The curved straw bale walls provide alcoves in the open plan for different activities. The internet cafe features a bright red straw bale and plaster bench. We’re happy to have been a part of making a wonderful place for teens and youth to hang out.
The simple shed roof is supported by large, rough posts, and the building is buttressed by the curved shape and strong metal X-bracing. The building was designed by Jon Hammond of Indigo Architects, and Menghetti Construction.
