Lighthouse Office

Architects Kagan Taylor and Justin Rice of Knowhow Shop have designed and built a new office for their design studio in their backyard. Named the Lighthouse Office, the micro-building is a place for work and an example that showcases their craft. The little structure is made of lightweight prefabricated panels, and built on industrial casters borrowed from roll-off dumpsters, meaning it can easily be moved around. It features a funky door with no right angles, a window, and a custom made skylight with details borrowed from a car sunroof that provide plenty of natural light during the day and project a warm inviting glow at night.
