Writer's Studio10. Aug2012

TAGS: studio, house

The Writer's Studio is located in the woods of Ghent, NY, near the owner’s main house. The studio is a one-room personal retreat, almost ascetic in its sculptural and abstract form but traditional in use of materials. The client wanted to have open views out to the corners while he is sitting at his desk looking south to the fireplace so that he could have a full view of his property.

"The writer’s studio is a place for one person to work, read and listen to music. Open vistas to a pond and fields are to one side, the other side is immersed in deep woods. The overall impression of the structure is deceivingly simple. Each façade is composed with distinct apertures specifically arranged to the light, the views and tailored, like a bespoke suit to his size and eye level. The inside is, uncluttered and elegant, unified by the use of walnut." - Copper Joseph Studio
