60: Debbie & Bryan Stolle + Studio 61: Diane M. Brandenburg Studio

Adèle Naudé Santos of Santos Prescott & Associates, San Francisco, worked with artist Doug Hollis. Hollis is nationally recognized for his investigation and incorporation of environmental phenomenon into site-specific installations. Ms. Santos was the founding Dean of the School of Architecture at the University of California, San Diego. Currently the Dean of the MIT School for Architecture and Planning, Santos designed the Yerba Buena Gardens Children’s Center, located on the roof of the exhibit halls of the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

Santos and Hollis decided that it was important to design the visual artists’ studios with separate living and working spaces to prevent unnecessary fumes from entering the live space. Each space has a singularly different character. The workspace is more introverted, with the roof curving down, while the live space is more extroverted and view oriented, with the curve of the roof opening to the sky. The two spaces are visually connected via a diagonal view across a connecting terrace.
