a skylit studio

VILLA_11

After taking a little well-needed vacation, I’m back with more frame.  Specifically, I’m sharing a continuation of the past two posts – a hillside studio and home.  Both of these projects included a small cubic volume topped with a pyramidal skylight.  This particular ‘studio’ typology is explored more fully here.  While the exterior is a solid white stucco-ed cube, the interior shows a four-square heavy timber frame, with a pair of wood scissor trusses forming a smaller cube at the top, which is itself topped by the skylight proper.  Since the geometry is a bit difficult to make out in these projections, I’ll draft up a quick perspective for a subsequent post.
