An artist’s studio adjacent to an existing first floor art deco apartment situated in Elwood, Melbourne. The site occupies a former parking space & ownership was restricted to a maximum above ground height of 3m. The studio has been designed to accommodate a shower/wet area, canoe storage, kitchenette & WC. The external skin is a combination of a white render finish and semi-translucent fibre glass sheeting to allow light to the interior whilst also relating to the adjoining building. Internally the timber structure is expressed and partly lined with plywood. Operable porthole windows (made from inspection hatches) provide ventilation and additional natural light.

    love the way the laminated timber beams have been left unstained. Beautiful finish to what would be a wonderful light filled space to mae art.
