PLATINUM Specialty Room/Project, Custom Bloomfield Artist’s Studio & Garage Sonoma County, Calif. Architect/Designer Levy Design Partners Builder Ironwood Builders Interior Designer Toby Levy Photographer Bernard Andre and Shouyu Liu Located in rural, western Sonoma County, this garage and artist studio is an addition to a late 19th-century farmhouse. The buildings integrate a premanufactured Quonset hut roof raised on a concrete stem wall. The two buildings, each 20 feet by 36 feet, have end walls with 10- by 12-foot openings, a glass garage door, and three folding patio doors. This allows for flexibility of use and integration of the surrounding landscape of grapevines, tomato plants and apple trees. The roof walls are insulated, and the vaulted roof is covered with ash plywood and features exposed ribs and concrete on the interior. Embedded in the concrete stem-wall exterior is a stone wall sculpture from Borobudur, Indonesia. To maintain the light throughout the structure, there are translucent plastic panels above the concrete. PLATINUM Master Suite, Custom Beautiful Necessities Oro Valley, Ariz.
