A small outbuilding is exactly what a couple needed for their Seattle property. The studio occupies the corner of a backyard filled with carefully-tended plants. First Lamp studio decide to cover the house with white siding and exposed Douglas fir, which is a great idea for a limited budget. The single main room features ample glazing to provide natural light for cultivation of artistic endeavors. The floor is polished concrete, chosen for its durability, low-cost, and minimal maintenance. A part of the furniture is modern, another part was taken from vintage furniture collection of the owners. The culmination of the collaboration was the design’s simplicity: a single neutral, durable, versatile volume that can easily host a changing collection of hobbies, art, furniture, and guests.
