Existing bungalow meets urban loft in this playful addition. The exterior stripes, formed from unexpected materials like roofing tiles and concrete, draw inspiration from Genoan stonework.
Located downtown, the loft space serves as an urban oasis built for an architect/painter and a scientist, at once a working artist's studio and gallery and a place to relax and entertain.
The old bungalow is sliced and punched to make way for a 20 foot threshold which threads both spaces.
The view through the threshold provides a frame for art and sky.
