As I walk through the doors to the lobby of the Goggleworks building I'm presented with the latest art exhibition. Beautifully crafted cradles and other furniture are scattered around the large room.
Every time I see the exposed brick and thick, heavy steel doors I can't help but think about what it must have looked like in the Industrial Age. The first factory in the world to manufacture optical glass for lenses and reading glasses. A booming industry in its day.
Huge floor-to-ceiling windows let the hazy, blistering sunlight of this humid summer day fill the room. The cool air blasting out of the vents is a refreshing break.
While climbing to the third floor to the studio that is my coworking space, I look up and take notice of the geometry. Despite walking this path for a few months, it is the first time I'm intentionally looking.
I love how the angles of the stairs play together with the beadboard enclosing the railings. The creamy white shiplap ceiling is a gorgeous reminder of the rich history of this old factory.
