Macleay Art Studio

Location: Portland, OR

Add space to create.

Our client wanted to build a 375 square-foot art studio onto the back of her 1962 Northwest Portland home to provide creative space devoted to painting. Our designer worked with the homeowner to carefully consider all the details that would completely tailor the area to her craft: storage solutions to house and organize supplies, proper lighting, and durable work surfaces.
