The research problem is to solve housing issues through the design of studio apartments, as they are suitable for youth, students, artists, designers, workers, bachelors, or people who live alone due to their low spending and maintenance costs. In addition, the studio environment is a conceptual, dynamic space that is exciting to the nature of artists who prefer studios as a living, creative, and working environment. The importance of the research is that studios are creative spaces suitable for all creative professions, such as artists, interior designers, actors, writers, dancers, musicians, photographers, poets, athletes, and many other fields of art and literature. These spaces need to be designed by many artistic personalities in interior design, which suits the nature of many artists’ works. They are difficult and enjoyable spaces for designers to express their creativity. Therefore, the research aims to study the types of small-sized houses, including studio spaces, in addition to creating and designing an innovative space that suits the artists’ thinking as well as providing a space that enhances creativity and productivity for artists. Finally, the research conducted an analytic study of the studio's environment, including the emergence of their concepts, sizes, types, layouts, styles, the difference between them, and the types of small residential apartments, such as loft apartments and one-bedroom apartments. Besides, it studied bachelor’s pad concepts, the characteristics of the artist studio, artist studio concepts, features, types of artist studios, interior design ideas for the art studio, design elements in a studio apartment, and the advantages and disadvantages of the studio. The study demonstrated creative interior design, which contributed to creating a studio environment suitable for the nature of the artists’ work in their various fields, considering the small space available for good utilization and study. Furthermore, artists' studio spaces can be wonderful for providing a creative and ideal work environment to increase their productivity and motivation.
