Travis Heights Art Studio traditional-exterior
 

Travis Heights Art Studio

This 500-square foot structure sits beside a grand, landmark Victorian house located on a large corner lot in a historic neighborhood. The new building serves as a combined art studio and garden shed with adjacent carport. While it recalls southern historic precedents in its geometry and proportions, the little box deftly absorbs the spirit of its Victorian neighbor and expresses it with a modern sensibility. Wood shingles and siding gently complement the
materials of the main house, while the metal roof provides rainwater collection. Imbued with the same sense of playfulness and joy that infuses the artist’s own work, each elevation offers a fresh surprise, from the overhead rolling door that opens the studio to the garden, to the columns of stacked windows that mimic the narrow windows of the Victorian. A small porch identifies the entry and addresses the main house. Travis Heights Art Studio received a national AIA Honor Award in 2009.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Let's say the artist is a painter. Ideally a painter's studio would be removed from the rest of a house, so that paint does not get on couches, and brushes aren't washed in the same sink where people cook or brush their teeth. This studio takes that to the extreme by being a 500-square-foot structure separate from the original Victorian house. The way the studio opens to the yard is a great feature we'll discuss more later.

6. Transform your garage or shed into usable space. Why let that garage or shed just sit there, when it could be reimagined as an art studio, a workshop or a Ping-Pong room? Let your plans for the space motivate you to get it cleared out and refreshed, so you can begin enjoying it before the summer is over.
11. Keep your dream (space) alive. Just because you may have to make do for now with that basement studio or closet craft space, it might not always be that way! Keep an inspiration file of ideas for your dream space, and take small steps to realize that dream. That could mean saving up for a space you purchase, of course, but that is not the only solution — sharing space with other creatives can allow you to get more room than you could otherwise manage on your own.Tell us: What would your ideal art space look like? What would you do there?Photos: Tour more studios and workshops
