The new 720-square-foot extension adds domestic spaces to the main structure, which houses a 2,500-square-foot artist’s studio, office, and storage building clad in barn wood. Dubbed the “Amoeba”, the structure extends out into the landscape and features elements of greenery that form a lush indoor garden. A large skylight is carved into the scissor-beam roof construction. The roof of the extension contrasts the inverted pitched roof of the studio, although it follows a similar geometric logic.

Sliding doors can be completely opened to let breeze naturally cool the spaces, leading out to the garden where the owners planted a variety of plants, including bamboo, fig trees, creeping vines, and aloes.
