Dhillon Studio

artist workspace

This structure houses an artist studio located in a residential yard. The enclosure is 380 sq. ft; the floor and adjacent patio are sunk into the ground to maximize the height of the interior space, which also includes a loft area. The form of the building was conceived so as not to overwhelm the yard space. The lower roof is constructed as a "living" roof with plants over a waterproof membrane. The taller roof is enclosed on one side by a lexan glazing, bringing in north light. The patio is to be used for additional workspace, entertaining, and play area.
