Text description provided by the architects. We chose to preserve the old building with its fine plastered walls and contrasting by adding a single element,-an element which is covered with the same material - black anodized aluminium plates - on facades and roof.
By using reflective surfaces inside the studio we have worked with the reflection of images and light in an attempt to "bring the view down into the studio". So a kind optical space - a house which works as a street mirror.
The new element is one homogeneous element in contrast to the white plastered facades of the old house.
The project is both contextual and innovative. In its shape and colour it blends in with the existing farmhouses. At the same time the studio offers new spatial feeling and qualities due to its small innovative solutions.
