Cantilevered writing studio

An absolutely gorgeous stone and oak writing studio by American architects Eric J Smith (where you can see many more photos) in Connecticut for retired banker and poet John Barr. Built close to his home and cantilevered over a slope, it is clad in bluestone and fieldstone to fit in the with the surrounding countryside. Features include a geothermal heating system and a corridor of oak bookshelves (which houses his large poetry collection), as well as a small kitchen, bathroom, and composting lavatory. There is also a rooftop terrace accessed via a wooden staircase.
