* Residential Architecture: Studio Addition by Bohl Architects

Residential Architecture: Studio Addition by Bohl Architects: “..A 1970′s ranch house designed by Y. Toshimoto, included a detached studio. Dark, uninviting and not capturing the view of a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay, the frame studio was removed. The new studio is built on top of the existing foundation and connected to the main house..The new fireplace is a ruinous form that flows inside to outside between two spectacular Japanese red maple trees. The steel frame supports a floating fir rafter, purlin, planked ceiling..The architectural goal of the room is to capture the view of the intimate mature garden, the intermediate view of the water, and the long distant view of the horizon..By manipulating these multiple scales, the studio addition successfully integrates with the existing building while  simultaneously proclaiming its independence..”  Extensive glazing, wood, stone; abundant natural light, views; contextual and material sensibility..
