This building is a new detached garage and artist studio in Portland’s Hawthorne neighborhood. It serves the dual functions of garage/storage space as well as artist work space.
The artist studio features a 12-foot wide operable glazed wall to provide both a visual and physical connection between the interior and exterior. The artist studio opens to a large patio, allowing work tables to be pushed outside during nice weather. During the rainy season, tables will remain inside, but the doors can be opened to create the feeling of working outside.
The style of the studio is traditional in keeping with the style of the existing Craftsman house.
