Hunt Studio / Hunt Architecture
Text description offered by the architects. With two younger little ones at household, it turned obvious that our modest 1940’s bungalow was way too modest for our escalating loved ones and architecture observe. We desired much more room and had plenty of it in our backyard. We determined to create an ADU on our home to property our architecture place of work and a visitor suite. At the time, we under no circumstances imagined how useful this variety of workspace would develop into all through a global pandemic.
Budget was a key player from the commencing. We had finite cash and a huge eyesight. We worked carefully with the contractors from the start to make certain we could fulfill our concentrate on price range.
We retained the footprint smaller and massing very simple so we could focus our interest (and finances) on top quality materials and considerate details. Burnished stucco and vertical cedar siding wrap the exterior. A compact kitchenette and bathroom separate the workplace from the visitor area. 9 foot cedar clad ceilings direct your gaze up toward large skylights and cedar elm trees over and above. Significant operable custom made steel windows open up up a see across the yard toward the present home. Our formerly underused yard has now grow to be an energetic focal position on our house. We enjoy watching our young ones enjoy in the grass, swing from the trees, and wave from the deck previously mentioned when operating in the place of work.
The final result is a modest challenge that has had a significant impact on our work-daily life harmony. Our commute might only be a couple of yards but the additional separation is immeasurable.
