A Unique Art Studio

Mariah’s parents moved in with her growing family to help with childcare through the pandemic.

While it was a blessing to have their help, Mariah lost her only space to paint: the spare bedroom. Painting was not only her side business, but her salvation, therapy, and outlet for creative expression all rolled up into her large canvases. Something she knew she would need during the difficult year ahead.

Without knowing how long her parents would be staying, she got busy designing her Knuk. She needed a quiet place to create, the physical space to layout her materials, and walls to hang her works-in-progress. We designed just the right backyard studio space for Mariah.

With two full walls of double glazed windows, one wall for a traditional window and custom shelving, we found that the morning light would be too bright on her work table. By shifting the axis and repositioning the modular ADU on her property, we discovered that she would have more privacy facing the trees instead of the kids’ playscape. Now she would have the perfect amount of privacy and diffused sunlight from sun-up to dinner time.

She chose to add a small powder room and a desk area for her work computer. Now she could get work handled and paint without leaving the studio, allowing her to increase productivity by having a focused space to isolate, create, and slay the day.

We added a wraparound deck that allowed for teddy bear picnics at lunchtime and family s’mores around the firepit after dinner, without interrupting her detached studio space. Even when her parents returned to their own home, the added studio space increased her productivity and allowed Mariah to become a full time artist.

It was the best investment she made in her career.
