Daughter likes the idea of having an island / work area in the middle :D one side for computer work, the other side for crafts, etc.

Daughter likes:
the little room underneath the bed :P Take out the bed and the computer/work area and the whole thing can be display/storage space for the studio, both hidden (the room underneath) and visible (i.e. shelves instead of the bed). Space-saver, too :P

how the studio is spacious enough to have different work areas

Studio notes

  • Studio doubles as a home office and will be used primarily by daughter, a graphic designer/illustrator who works for a company in the US, so all the work is done from home via the computer/internet.
  • Daughter also has a side business making handmade paper goods and selling them online. She receives orders and ships packages all over the world.
  • Studio space should be spacious enough for computer work area, crafts area, storage area (for paper goods supplies— most of them bulky, i.e. reams of paper, boxes of notebooks, etc.), and a small couch.
  • Will ideally have access to a balcony (see previous post)
  • In daughter’s previous notes I think there was a mention of having a sink in the studio but never mind that— would like the studio to have a shared bathroom with daughter’s room instead. Daughter’s room can be smaller than studio as it will just be a place for sleeping/resting.

Balcony

Dad and daughter are thinking to have a balcony fronting the house. Daughter would like the studio to (ideally) have a balcony so as to have an open-air area for ventilation and for paintings to dry. Maybe the masters bedroom and studio can be next to each other on the second floor, sharing the same balcony.

Mom and daughter like:
that the kitchen (especially) is surrounded by natural light via glass panels
that the kitchen is “enclosed” but with a view towards other parts of the house / outside

The whole family likes:
Lots of natural light
Daughter particularly likes the bright corridor (not a fan of narrow corridors but this is ok) and how you can see out the open front door even from the far end of the house
