At Remodelista, we brake for creative garage conversions. Over the years, we’ve come across some standout examples of found space, including an Airy Studio Apartment Over a Garage in Auckland, a Guest Room in a Garage in North London, and our own Michelle’s Mill Valley Grottage. The latest is a Santa Ynez, California, multi-car garage in which one of the stalls now serves as a couple’s art studio.
The makeover is part of a full property renovation of a 1971 ranch house in Santa Barbara wine country by Dylan Henderson of Salt Architecture and Rita Donahoe of Rita Chan Interiors. The owners are a young couple who lead the California good life: they divide their time between here and LA, and requested a dedicated creative space for painting, drawing, and photography.
