From the architect. A Villa build for a former Philips executive in a green suburb of Eindhoven named ‘Schuttersbosch’ gave designer Hugo de Ruiter the perfect possibility to combine living and working with the existing indoor garage used as studio space.

“I don’t want to feel like I am working in my garage” was the main goal of the assignment. The solution was found in adding a mask-shaped volume to the existing garage. By covering this with a perforated corrugated aluminium skin as mono material for the walls and the roof, a subtle continuation of the clay-roofing of the existing home arises. A collar of galvanized steel that acts as a terrace boundary highlights the disengagement of existing and new.

On the interior the addition provides extra floor-space and height. An abundance of daylight can enter the studio through a south faced strip of glass dividing the addition from the existing roof.

what an amazing idea to convert your garage to an office! the techniques the architect used was intelligent even though that using metal doors might make disturbing noise in winter or when the wind blows.

Well, let''s see wat the designer who is working in this atelier has ta say about the project.
Working and having meetings in this small office is quiet convenient and comfortable.
Is is not to big to work allone in this room, but the space is also big enough to have a meeting with 6 people. The wooden wall with storage is a nice contrast with the tiles, the iron and the plaster.
I have 2 minor points of critic. First;During 1/2 an hour at 12 am. The sun is shining in my screen through the top window. Second;the metal doors sometimes make some noise with heavy winds.
Check my website to see what furnitureand product design is realised in this beautifull office.

Very interesting addition. Good concept. I wouldn't mind to see a cross section detail where old roof meets new wall...
