Artist's Studio

A local artist purchased this steel building that had been used as an automotive garage. Mark was contacted by Battle Ridge Construction for an assessment and eventual schematic design and construction documents. The owner required comfortable living spaces combined with a large painting studio with large amounts of North light.

Mark designed a bath, mechanical, laundry, storage into the lower level as well as the living, dining, kitchen and art studio. There are two lofts in the space, one houses the master suite, the other a small guest space. The centrally located steel stair is an important element of the design, with strong sculptural qualities. The existing overhead garage doors are maintained, for security reasons, with new glazing applied to the outside.
