A large artist’s studio located in Upstate NY.
Renovation of an old barn into a library and studio. The two levels share a heating and cooling system, using fans at the top of the ceiling on the second floor to pull the cool air up from below to cool the second floor, or to push the hot air down in the winter. The perimeter desk on the second floor works in conjunction with the ventilation panels. All of the existing openings on the exterior were glazed and the existing holes in the old floors were filled with resin. Everything leaks, the perimeter vents and resin knots allow light and air to pass between the library and the writing studio.
An art museum dedicated to the work of Philip Taaffe in Tyrol, Austria
