The artist would have liked to create a separate outbuilding for her studio, but factors like snowy winters made this option impractical. The artist told Moger: “Create a space that will inspire me every day.”Having to work around the sycamore tree was fantastic inspiration to create a truly transformative and inspiring space between home and studio. The long hallway turns, and because the studio is built at a higher elevation than the house, there are steps up along the journey. This causes the owner to pause, shake off household tasks and get into a creative state of mind along the way. While the space is narrow, the vaulted ceiling is uplifting. Moger also saw the opportunity to give this space a very appropriate secondary use as an art gallery. All of the lighting was designed for hanging artwork (here on photo shoot day, the artwork had yet to make its way off the floor, but it eventually did). “The hallway creates a procession that slows you down,” the architect says.The gallery lighting design was completed in collaboration with Sean O’Connor Lighting.
