Imagine escaping to a private haven where you could work on whatever it is you are passionate about surrounded by beauty and tranquility. Well, that is exactly what this 100-square-foot garden studio offers.
The studio cladding is made out of the same cedar as the fencing and decking. This creates a flow of unity around the space, enclosing the yard and evoking a sense of serenity and harmony.
The ceiling is vaulted for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it enhances the sense of space in the small interior. Secondly, the specific angle is ideal for bringing in the southern sun.
The stud wall storage system offers numerous cubbies for books and more. The books are displayed in such a way that they are a functional form of art.
This shot looking upward toward the vaulted ceiling gives you a different angle on the space, and also shows you what the view is like through the skylights.
You can see more of the storage spaces between the studs here. This is a very clever utilization of the limited space in the office, keeping the floor more or less open.
Here is an outdoor shot of the studio in use. The yard provides a play area for the mother and child. The office offers seclusion, but its proximity to the yard keeps the family connected even when the office is in use.
This idyllic shot captures not just the beauty of the architecture, but the beauty of the concept. The family is all together, but the office creates a calm, focused work environment.
Finally, this overhead shot is amazing! Your attention is captured instantly by the bright green lawn as well as the clean profile of the cedar around it, enclosing it and separating it from the chaos of the surrounding world. It truly is an oasis of order and tranquility, a place to work, rest, and play in peace and comfort.
