Wife and husband designer-builders Monica Reskala and Christopher Weiss produce these gorgeously unique hand carved structures from reclaimed and sustainably harvested lumbers. Since 2002, their design/build practice MRCW has been dedicated to crafting beautiful, timeless structures out of their 3200 sq. ft woodshop in Oakland, California. From architecture to landscape structures and furniture, design and construction go hand in hand, informing one another throughout the process. The duo operates from a slow craft philosophy: they believe that if one is to make a product or create a space for human use, then one should do so as conscientiously as possible. Like the slow food of architecture, what MRCW is committed to is not only the aesthetics of slow, but a way of making.
