Artists’ Studio Bridge in San Diego, United States by Safdie Rabines Architects

The studio project is for two artists wishing to create a new work space while minimizing the impact of any new construction on the natural landscape of their property. The studio is located to the rear of their home, connecting it to a beautiful portion of the site which prior to the addition was inaccessible.

To create the studio and library without disturbing the surrounding area, the studio was conceived of as a “bridge” spanning a small arroyo adjacent to the house, providing the opportunity to experience the canyon from the best of all possible locations in and above it.

The bridge is supported on two concrete piers on either side of the canyon and is spanned with two trusses made of top and bottom glulam chords with steel cross members. A pair of oversized sliding doors on each side adds to the feeling of suspension while capturing the ocean breezes.
