"Her work is more inwardly focused, so the studio's views are much different than those from the others," Mohler says. The clerestory windows face north and let in the light as well as the view of the woods. The studio does not have big views of the water.
Having separate buildings also means that the homeowner can turn the heat off in the guesthouse when it's not in use.
At the end of the entry sequence, one arrives at this entry court; it's shared by the main house and guesthouse and gets the first glimpse of the water views.
The architects also placed larger decks flanking the main house, with a narrow deck across the water-facing facade to maximize the views and extend the rooms outside.
