Music studio addition to a single family house
An addition to a weekend home on Long Island, the project’s main space is a music room designed for piano playing. Acoustics and natural light play a major role in the design. Balancing intimacy and exposure, the music room is nearly invisible from the entrance, but opens up with dramatic folding glass doors to the rear garden. Smaller windows provide directed views of the main house, the forest, or the sky. A wall of rippling shelving echoes the bent glass facade, in harmony with the shape of the piano.
