STUDIOS & ACCESSORY DWELLINGS
Expand your home overnight with bright, elevating, comfortable studio space for work or rest.
We provide inspiring designs through pre-fab turnkey solutions that won’t disrupt your busy life.
Our modular studios and accessory dwellings are made-to-order and customized in concert with you.
We have been working with great care and attention on our newest space called Casa Zama. Zama means "dawn" in Mayan, and was the original name for the town of Tulum on the Caribbean Sea, the place that first received sunlight in the Mayan kingdom each day. We want Casa Zama to be a place to rest, rise and shine at the dawn of each day. At 300 square feet, this unit is a larger version of the Zen Den with full bath, kitchen and living space.
After the success of the Zen Den, we expanded our studio to accommodate a bed, bath and kitchen and create a full suite. At 250 sq ft this studio can be used as an in-law suite, an Airbnb rental, or a backyard retreat. Pronounced Laleet, this name in Hindi means beauty and elegance, and is the name of a traditional song played at the dawn of day for serenity. It's the perfect name for the inspiration behind this design.
The Zen Den
The Zen Den was our first design, a studio space to work and create. 170 square feet of elevating space with heated floors make this a cozy space for an office, she-shed, reading room, exercise room, or whatever you desire. Without a bathroom or plumbing, and being less than 200 sf, this unit is easy to permit in most towns as an accessory unit.
How it Works
We defined four steps to keep it super simple for you.

“I just had a moment of awe looking towards all of these incredible windows; the fall colors coming to life just outside this clean, pure space. What a juxtaposition. The wild and the meticulous creative spirit at work. It’s like images of architecture amidst nature. Always my favorite. ”
