The artist studio is designed to take care of two things majorly. One is to fulfil the requirements of the artist, making the building well ventilated, well lit and giving ample storage. The other one is to make it a modern but not an out of the context addition to the existing John Lautner Home.
The studio is connected to the bedroom-3/office via the pad-lock door. It is also given wide doorways to front and back side of the home, allowing the artist to have generous views and light while working. The work space/table is an extension of the polished concrete flooring, with storage drawers, an interesting wall storage feature and a loft space. Since there are two potential ceiling storage spaces, the ladder is movable to be used in whichever side.
The pergola extension from the steel framing allows climbers and vines to grow that add an interesting feature to the studio. The roof is also designed for plantation. The bathroom sky-light window is fixed exactly on its two walls as can be seen in the plan.
The flat roof of the studio as well as its overhanging steel structure with glass encasing, gives it a look of a modern extension to the existing house. But the beige wall finish and the wide folding doors create a harmony with the existing house. The studio hopes to provide a flexibility and scope to extend out into the gardens, through views and letting the artist shift the canvas between inside and outside to work. It attempts to fulfill the requirements and become an interesting addition to the building.
