Shannon Leahy designed this 800-square-foot art studio with radiant-heated floors and solar power. The solar panels are installed on the main house.
The studio includes a bathroom, an office, and a reading room that could also be used for guests. By having the studio face south, high ceilings and large windows fill up the space with natural light.
For consistency, the studio was inspired by the architecture of the main house.
Although the architecture is similar between the main house and the studio, Leahy wanted the studio to use a cooler palette with concrete floors to compliment the white walls in contrast to the main house which features bold colors.
A fire pit and garden complete the backyard as a place to relax when not making art.
