The Studio was designed by the Morans in the Romantic Victorian cottage style with strong Queen Anne elements. There are touches of Colonial Revival and Italianate as well. There are approximately ten (10) rooms, with the studio space taking-up the vast majority of the first floor. The exterior color-palette is influenced by the aesthetic movement.
