Architect Eric J. Smith has designed a small writer’s studio that’s located in Connecticut and is home to a 1,700 volume collection of poetry.
The studio is a place where its owner can write and read poetry as well as escape from aspects of modern life. It can also be used to meditate among tall oaks, observe wildlife, and reflect on philosophical and artistic ideas.
Set away from the main house, the 650-square foot studio is clad in fieldstone and bluestone, and constructed to resemble a historic dry-stacked, mass stone wall. To keep it at a nice temperature, there’s geothermal heating and a cooling system.
Inside, there’s running water and electricity that allow for a tiny kitchen area with a small fridge, coffee pot and sink. A single bed is hidden in a large drawer under the stairs that lead to the roof, where the owner can sit among the treetops. There’s also an incinerating toilet and sink in a private niche along the east wall.
The glass-enclosed writer’s space which is cantilevered over the hill, has uninterrupted views along a 16-foot window wall.
