ART STUDIO AND HOUSE

A distinguished professor of art at the University of Kansas and his artist wife asked us to design this one bedroom house with a 5,000 sf art studio. They produce large-scale art pieces and needed floor area, volume and uninterrupted wall space for their works in progress as well as their extensive art collection. They wanted the building to screen them from the noisy street to the south while opening to the pond to the northeast. The site drops over twenty feet in its length. The living quarters are tucked in on the lower level facing the pond. The butterfly roof collects water that drops from the roof at each end into sculptural downspouts. The zero maintenance exterior is achieved with thin concrete panels we cast on the site.
