This small studio creates a work space for a professional couple and their kids, while an adjacent terrace provides a car space and outdoor entertainment area adjacent to a new deck. A curved concrete roof, brick wall and custom steel window give the building a surprising softness and provides a potential backdrop for an animal sculpture collection!
