Two art studios adjoin a central volume at this work/live residence built from terracreto (sustainable concrete), glass, and painted steel just outside of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Residents Austin and Lida Lowrey, retired design and museum professionals, collaborated with their two daughters—Sheridan, an artist, and Elizabeth, an architect—to design the structure as a place for creative contemplation.
“It’s never static or solid here—with thelight, there’s always some sort of movement.”—Austin Lowrey, resident
A workspace, bedroom, and bath comprise each of the two studios; an early riser, Lida spends most of the day painting in her space.
A collection of flea-market finds and personal keepsakes sit perched upon a shelf in Austin’s studio.
