Exterior: Nautilus Artist Studio With Overhang

By broadening the underside, the exposed beams reach from inside the studio out into a six-foot overhang toward the landscape and main house creating a haven for the family to gather and relax. The wedge shape for the studio is based on a golden rectangle that was squeezed by sight constraints.

Exterior: Nautilus Modern Artist Studio With Overhang

We found inspiration in the spirals of the Nautilus, which are reflected in the studios placement on the site and in the section of the building. The six foot roof overhang was designed to provide the artist working space outdoors where she can stay dry when it starts to rain. The overhang also keeps direct sun from hitting the textiles outside.
