This is an artist's studio, located in a unique sustainable community on a working farm in central Virginia, USA. The 565 SF structure is sited on the high point of the 33-acre lot, tucked between a pasture, an apple orchard, the existing cottage, and a future homesite. The simple, prismatic form of the building distills our minimalist barn inspirations into an essential and timeless vernacular. The sculptural form of the building is emphasized by the use of the same wood cladding on the roof and the walls. As one approaches the studio, the dark geometry resolves into individual slats of wood.
