Haney Studios is a collection of studio buildings that are secluded in the woodlands of Massachusetts. Designed by Ann Arbor, Mich.–based BLU Homes, this residential complex was created using structural steel frames, light-gauge infill framing, and steel-panel sliding. These materials were chosen because of their range of colors, types, and varieties, as well as for their versatility and low cost. Because of computer driven designs, the construction of the infill framing for the entire project created no waste. The structures are designed to be foldable for ease of transport and relocation.
“It’s five stars in my book for experimental use, for craftsmanship, and installation. Just the fact that it’s foldable and it’s able to be moved. I think it could start a whole movement of these structures that could be easily erected and taken down and moved; that’s a huge asset to the industry.” —Sylvia Botero
