In 1959, it started its life as a modest hunting shack in the woods of Rhinebeck, NY. But you aren’t likely to find cases of buckshot in the small black cabin these days. That’s because Stephen Holl Architects have transformed the secluded shack into an off-the-grid artist studio.

Holl designed the 750-square-foot studio as a study of light and space, and as such it features seven “light turrets,” according to 6sqft. It also includes four cubic skylights, two cubic bays and an east-facing light catcher that also constitutes the entry.

This is definitely what happens when an architect gets lost in the woods.
