DESIGNER’S OFFICE, Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts
Nestled in a pine grove in rural western Massachusetts, this 650 square foot designers studio contains a small vaulted workspace and meeting room. The building is positioned on a southerly axis for maximum daylighting and passive solar exposure via clerestory and sliding windows. Exterior walls are sloped to allow for built-in bookcases at the studio perimeter. Clad in white cedar shingles and contrasting red cedar channel siding, the office blends into its natural surroundings.
