This 800 square foot ADU sits atop an existing one-story house with garage. The Dwelling Unit above is a one-bedroom unit with a vaulted ceiling accessed via internal stair. Design strategies for enlarging the living spaces include a flush covered deck which the bedroom can spill out onto, internal windows to the stairwell to optimize natural daylight, and barn doors to facilitate the open floor plan. The ground level garage has been converted into a workshop and art studio.
