This detached two-car garage and studio space will replace an existing shed and single car garage which have surpassed their useful lifespan. The garage itself will have overhead doors located on both the alley and courtyard sides, to allow the artist homeowner to move large pieces in and out of the new workspace. The studio features south facing clerestory windows peaking above the lower roof and an entrance door concealed from the courtyard view. The garage roof is structured to support a shallow depth of growing medium and vegetation. Exterior wall materials include vertically applied asphalt shingles and metal siding.
