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.


Site-
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.
