This renovation transformed the attic of a craftsman-style bungalow in Atlanta into a private eyrie for sleep and study. The expansive, cruciform roof was foregrounded by tucking the bathroom and closets into two compact dormers and by lining the edges with low, built-in cabinets. The veneer for the cabinets was milled from the same Douglas fir as the floor so they read as a single, folded element under the tent-like roof.
Two large, hanging, wooden dowel screens are integral features for the project. Each screen uses 441 cherry wood dowels with holes, threaded onto aircraft cables. Each screen is finished at the bottom by a stainless steel rod where cables are secured using hidden set screws.
