The Cardinal Studio

The Cardinal Studio in the Leighton Artists Studios. 

Named after the designer Douglas Cardinal, the design for this studio takes the form of a nautilus shell. Thick cedar- log walls and the absence of windows on the pathway side shut out external noise and disperse internal sounds. The introverted exterior design discourages inquisitive visitors. A large window and outdoor deck, facing the mountains and forest, provide an uninterrupted view. The studio contains an upright piano.


Floor dimensions:
