BZ Studio

[1996-1997]

Wood framed with clay floor and corrugated steel skin. Catches water off roof into 300 gal stock tank.

The Studio is a miniature version of the house with the roof reversed. It is curved on the North and South with corners at the East and West.

The structure is made from steel pipes used as connecting hinges for the re-used steel window frames, and trusses made of steel re-bar, welded on site.

The studio is a passive solar design using the floor as heat sink, and is comfortable in the middle of the winter by 8:00 AM if it is sunny. Electricity is from the House via a conduit.
