Studio House


Architectural design and construction of custom home and art studio in Floyd, Virginia. Green building strategies include compact footprint and natural ventilation and lighting.

Deep woods, no long views, small winding creek.

Program- Artistís house with need for plenty of natural light, studios for paper and print-making, computer graphics, and archives. Napping places for cats and wall space for fine art a priority.

Solution- Small footprint for minimal site disruption, a variety of porches and decks to extend space. View developed to hillside across creek. Tall windows and skylights for natural ventilation. Studio functions separated.
