Designed as a home office for a writer, this 400-sq. ft. studio is an ideal retreat for quiet contemplation. Folding glass doors open to give it a strong connection to the outdoors. An angled roofline and upper windows enhance the sense of space. The use of organic materials warms the modern aesthetic, with a cedar ceiling and floor made from reclaimed whiskey barrels. Inside two columns of bookcases roll open to reveal a half-bath and storage area. On the rear, a terrace is cut out of the roofline.
