This workroom or atelier for a professional artist was carved from the homeowner's attic, making it a traditional artist's garrett. The custom storage unit fits nicely under the angled ceilings, and includes plenty of vertical storage for canvases, shelving for art books and sketch pads, drawers to store smaller items,as well as a long countertop to arrange brushes. A flood of even light flows into the space during the day from the windows. The natural light is supplemented by track lighting and LED can lights - which are very important during the long, dark Chicago winters.
