Artists Studio, Kew

This project is an artist's studio located on the top of a carport located in a quiet residential street in Kew. The brief was to create a retreat away from the main house that would provide inspiration to the emerging artist's work.

The response was to design a 'treehouse' on top of the garage with access via an external steel stair which captured views of the surrounding treetops, creating a space that was calm and would be filled with beautiful filtered light. The materials respond to the surrounding context through the use of natural, raw materials with expressed structure and detailing, with colours that respond to the existing terracotta roof of the existing carport.
