Located in the Bryant neighborhood of Seattle, this new artist studio provides needed space for an experienced glass artist. The owner needed a space away from the house where she could be creative, noisy, and messy! All aspects important to the process of creating fused glass art. She also wanted a space filled with natural light and the ability to move works of art outside on nice days. The solution was to build an addition to the existing freestanding single car garage along the alley. The space has vaulted ceilings, exposed glue lam ridge beam, concrete floor, and clear fir interior windows and trim. The exterior ties in with the existing garage and house. The south end of the studio has a full wall of glass windows and doors that’s framed by an exposed steel moment frame. The existing garage was also updated at the same time with an electric car charging station, attic storage and finished drywall.
