This artist's studio is located near the main house on a large sloping lot in Portola Valley. The goal was to provide a spacious studio for an artist who occasionally likes to work on a large scale, both on canvas and with sculpture. The primary form for the studio is a simple barn shape, but the detail and fenestration are specific to its function as a workspace for an artist. The support functions needed to be considered too, such as painting storage, clean up areas, and a space for an office. The studio can also function as a guesthouse for children and grandchildren.
