A Closer Look at ADUs: Huron Studio


In person registration is closed but you can still attend online.

Are Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) part of the affordable housing solution in Central Ohio? This three-part series will examine 1) a case-study in Central Ohio, 2) followed by a conversation with city officials about zoning for and the future of ADUs, and 3) ending with a charrette to design ADU concepts.

At this session learn how one local architect worked with the building department to build an ADU on her property in Columbus. This case study will examine the current challenges to build an ADU and the overall benefits of ADUs.

The Huron Studio is design forward, yet affordable, modern 575-square-foot live/work studio in Columbus. The inspiring renovation transforms a dated garage into a creative design studio flooded with light. The project highlights streamlined simplicity, subtle refinement, and a natural and welcoming material palette. It features a full kitchen and bath, a living area with a Murphy bed, loft space for working and lounging, and a shared patio for outdoor enjoyment. The project was conceived of by a team acting as their own client, designer, and builder. They created nearly everything themselves, salvaging what they could from the existing structure, creatively sourcing materials, and choosing budget-friendly products where possible to stay within their means.

Huron Studio won an AIA Columbus Honor Award in 2022. The architect is YR Architecture + Design.

This series is sponsored by the Committee on Design.

This is a hybrid event with in-person and online options available.
