As one of the owners of this studio, I am thrilled to see it featured on your blog. It was an amazing process to envision this with Cathy. Since we have a primary residence 40 feet away, this was always seen as a studio/workspace/ guesthouse when needed. She spent time with us exploring both of our needs and desires and took such great care creating a remarkable space for us. We wanted a space where we could do our own individual work. I am the writer, my husband, a photographer. We also wanted a place to daydream. Be inspired. The building was sited perfectly for the latter taking in the views and bringing the green countryside in. An aspect of our space that has not been discussed is the psychological impact when you enter. Immediately you are surprised by the volume, and combined with the view, you have the sensation of being safely perched in a tree looking into a forest. Sharing our space with others was equally important. I like to cook big and we have a long wooden table that we place in the middle of the space. It seats twenty and it will again be the location of our friends and family Thanksgiving this year. As others have written it has been used for writing and drawing workshops, a memorial and a classical guitar concert. We are imagining more uses. The couch shown in the photographs makes into a comfortable bed and the alcove becomes a cozy place for a sleep over allowing our guests to enjoy the stars before nodding off. It is meeting all of our needs and continues to inspire us. We are so grateful to Cathy.
