The creation and the function and character of the
space was made possible by Linda Tuttle, the architect
living next door.
“I felt the exterior must be contemporary and simple
with materials relating to the house, but not look ‘small
house like’ in any way,” Tuttle says.
She began working closely with Meyer five years ago to
design the perfect 1,000-square-foot studio space anchored
by a flying porch that would fit every one of his needs.
“It is a place to paint, create, study, share with other
artists, and a gallery to be enjoyed by friends and others,”
The studio can be opened, “extending the space to the
deck and private east garden, an outdoor room intended to
rest the mind and eyes,” Tuttle says.
The height of the shelves and cabinets are even scaled up
to perfectly match the artist’s 6-foot, 5-inch height.
“A lot of times, I will paint standing up,” Meyer says.
Tuttle designed the dividers for the frames to not take
up much room.
