An artist’s studio addition to an existing home serves as a catalyst to transform a back yard into a series of terraced outdoor rooms, pulling an indoor lifestyle out into the subtropical climate.

Nestled between mature oak specimens in the front and a lake in the rear, the 4,800 one story vanilla box home was begging for a connection to its sub-tropical setting. The vast open, yet decaying spaces in the rear of the 23,000 sqft site were in desperate need of an intervention.  The opportunity presented itself when our clients, a couple with three children, approached us with the request to add an artist studio for the mother–a painter– on the Northern edge of the property.  They also wanted to re-design the outdoor areas which consisted of a worn out fabric canopy, a pool, and a large expanse of unusable open space which sloped down to the lake.

The clients requested a painting studio with ample work and wall space as well as vast amounts of light, an office and a bathroom. For the outdoors, they expressed their desire to create a covered terrace and a Bar-B-Q area that would support serving and entertaining functions.
