We recently featured how Ryall Porter Sheridan renovated a 1970s house into a beautiful green retreat using Passive House standards. In a similar vein, the Manhattan-based architects have created a small artist’s shelter with comparable aesthetic, employing many of the same sustainable strategies throughout. Called ‘Orient Artist Studio’, this project on the north-fork of Long Island is clad in a beautifully aged timber envelope that protects its pristine white interiors.

The Orient Artist Studio is a small, energy-efficient retreat designed for an artist on Long Island. Although it’s surrounded by forest, its interiors are bright and open, making it an ideal environment for an artist. The window’s triple glazing and insulated frames protects its inhabitants throughout the year, reducing both heat loss and heat gain to create a comfortable, stable working environment.

Solar panels placed on the roof capture our brightest star’s light and turn it into energy for the small but wonderfully charming shelter that has achieved international Passive House certification.

All of Ryall Porter Sheridan’s work can be seen here.
