When an art studio comes with the house, drawing on the walls is encouraged.
The art studio makes a clear delineation of “his” space and “her” space. His, wrapped in translucent polycarbonate, draws in the light and meshes inside and out. Hers, clad in cedar, is a more private box, as the programming flip-flopped several times dur

Just as water and oil don’t mix, neither do the crafts of collage and ceramics. Nevertheless, a combination of the two was precisely what one creative couple living on Long Island requested when they contacted the design studio in the late 2000s. “Collage is all paper and glue, and pottery is all dust and moisture; those are terrible things together,” says designer Joshua Weiselberg, who went on to accept the project with his design partner Selin Semaan. On a site with just 700-square-feet of buildable space, the designers intersected two rectangular boxes to bring the artists—but not their materials—together.

Screen-printing home studio

The late architect David Boone was always one to take his work home with him—he just kept it in the home’s office. The new residents of his 1972 house embrace a more fluid approach to the live/work divide. Verda Alexander and her son, Apolo, collaborate on a project in their first-floor studio

Lone and Søren Asmusson moved into Posehuset Studio, their country estate outside of Copenhagen, intending to use the space as a home-cum-art studio. Before long, however, their artistic endeavours expanded beyond the dedicated music studio and artist workrooms inside their home and began encroaching upon their living space. The couple turned to the barn adjacent to their farmhouse, and with the help of the VELUX Group in Denmark, remodeled the existing building into a multi-purpose artists’ workspace

Every wall has solid plywood behind it, so Monkman can hang his work anywhere. He uses the space as a gallery when collectors or curators visit.

In Toronto, a painter accustomed to crashing in his studio created an airy artistic haven with both working and living quarters for a more balanced and polished picture. With broad expanses of white walls and perfectly modulated light, this space is the very picture of an artist’s studio—and it was crafted as carefully as Monkman’s mountain landscape.

Brooklyn Artist Studio Upstairs Loft

When the artist Jennifer Bartlett, known for her large-scale paintings and installations, decided to leave her longtime studio in Greenwich Village for Brooklyn, she found an old industrial building in the historic Clinton Hill area. The 19th-century masonry structure had originally been home to the Candy & Confectioners Workers union, though was at the time functioning as a children’s center.
