BACKYARD STUDIO + GARAGE CONCORD, MA
Awarded 2023 Citation Award by the American Institute of Architects Central MA Chapter
When multiple schemes to enlarge the existing ranch house on this parcel exceeded the project budget, this frugal scheme for a new outbuilding showed promise.
Cantilevers on opposing end-walls create a 30x24 second floor studio suite above a 22x24 garage.
Entry, service spaces, and a napping nook tuck under the shed roof’s low side, and the studio proper fills the high side.
