Text description provided by the architects. This small 2-story art studio replaces an even smaller, uninsulated, structurally unsound, rat-infested 2-car garage.With impending demolition, an opportunity was presented to cel¬ebrate the life of the anonymous building. Hundreds of holes were drilled into the building, resulting in a kaleidoscope interior during the daytime and a pumpkin lan¬tern at night. A party was held, and the next day the old garage was demolished.

The previous garage foundation was re-used for the new artist studio.The old crawl space was infilled with fill material to permit the installation of a new concrete slab on grade. A new courtyard space created by the insertion of the 2-story artist studio and the pre-existing 1912 farmhouse serves as an outdoor living room for the family. The new artist studio "pops out" in two directions, providing for covered firewood storage at one end and sheltered bicycle storage at the other end. The south wall of the old garage building is kept in place to serve as a screen wall to the adjoining property. The space defined by the old garage wall and the new artist studio serves as an entryway for the studio, and a courtyard space for doors to open out to. The 2-story structure provides for a loft space to look over the main level. While only 450 square feet, the studio provides ample working space for a husband and wife and their two children.
