Old Stockbridge Rd Studio
Lenox, MA
820 sq. ft. Studio Addition

This painting studio was a second story addition over an existing garage. Although respectful of the existing house height and materials, the new studio is clad in pre-stained shingles and has contemporary windows and tension wire balustrade. Wide shed dormers on either side increase the volume and drama inside the addition. The interior has a beautiful play of light wood paneling accented by dark bronze windows and light fixtures. The cork floor is laid in broad contrasting stripes. A small kitchenette and full bath are inserted into the transition space that connects to the existing house by half a flight of stairs.
