Serene Artist's Studio Lets In Just Enough Scenery To Not Be Distracting


Peterson Rich Office designed a modern studio for artist Tula Telfair in Lyme, Connecticut. The space is designed to complement the picturesque setting, while not letting it take the artist away from her work.

This 1,200-square-foot studio features a stained cedar exterior and an unusual roofline.
A glass door on the north side sits opposite a glass window on the south wall that overlooks a birch tree forest.
