Our brief was to create an adaptable contemporary space for clients who love to entertain, a stand-alone studio that would still afford uninterrupted light to the main house. With an eye on maintaining minimal and elegant design, our aim was to create a sleek and restful retreat with a strong connection to the landscaped gardens.
The dual-aspect, frameless glass doors dissolve the boundary between the studio and the garden. Visually heavy limestone walls contrast with recessed glazing to create a sculptural interplay of solid and void. The simple pier and lintel construction references the architecture of the main house, and the beautifully handcrafted cedar detailing of the cantilevered canopy compliments the palette of the surrounding landscape
