This art studio I designed for my wife, who is a paper artist. The roof form is a hyperbolic paraboloid commonly known as a saddle roof. The south - east roof corner is positioned to allow early morning sun warm the exposed concrete floor. The west building face is shaded in the summer by a large Box Elder tree- keeping it from overheating in the afternoon. Inside is a simple open space allowing my wife to produce her art. It is also used as a greenhouse for starting plants in the spring. I have included an animation of a tiny house design that would work in this shell. The walls are a combination of poly carbonate and corrugated galvanized metal.
