Christie Residence & Studio

“I’ve been thinking that maybe a separate building is better after all. But I think it has to have some sense of connection to the existing buildings in terms of the general structure – the roof line – the basic nature. However, I think I’d like it to be a couple of stories, a couple of decks built in and possibly tying it to the others through a series of “steppes” – like several different ground planes that might start to interact with the three buildings. This would involve more landscaping…”

There appears to be a couple of main issues arising in the process. One is the potential play of the positioning of the buildings – based on the divergent angle between the garage and the studio – I can see you trying to take the angle into account. The other has to do with having a completely seperate, new building versus adding on to the existing studio. If there was to be a new building, I guess I would locate it to the East of the studio – east side of the well and slightly up a slope rather than trying to position it close to the present studio. I don’t mind the modernist, double box-like structure but it might be too distinct from the existing buildings (which I realize have no real distinct character in themselves)
