What Houzz contributors are saying:

... a triangular skylight that aligns with the walkway to the building (it was visible in the sliding-door opening a couple photos back). This skylight is probably the most important aperture in the whole project, since it validates the effort in creating an irregular, faceted form. Otherwise, the building is all straight walls extruded from the base, minus the wall facing the house, which angles in one foot from the slab of the studio to the high point of the roof (this is visible in the earlier photo with the shower balcony).
Houzz contributor John Hill describes the studio as "heavy and textured on the outside but light and smooth on the inside." Making the most of natural light was an important consideration in the design.See the rest of this concrete studio
… ein dreieckiges, oberlichtartiges Fenster, das auf den erhöhten Fußweg zum Eingang ausgerichtet ist (auf einem der zurückliegenden Fotos, das auch die geöffnete Schiebetür zeigt, erkennt man die Anordnung). Dieses Fenster ist wahrscheinlich die wichtigste Öffnung in der Außenwand. Es die konsequente Pointe des asymmetrischen Entwurfsansatzes. Dabei sind fast alle Wände rechtwinklig – nur die Wand, die dem Wohnhaus gegenüber liegt, tanzt etwas aus der Reihe, indem sie sich vom Studioboden bis zum Dachfirst um ungefähr 30 Zentimeter krümmt (auf dem Bild mit dem Balkon kann man es sehen).

large skylight nice but may be pricy - consider light tubes to use daytime sun efficiently

Highly dramatic spatially...making the materials feel intimate with the owners/visitors. Space appears very accessible without compromising the beauty of the materials.
