Artists Studio / Wallace Architects
Textual content description offered by the architects. Outstanding artist Jacqui Colley required a studio house to create her typically large-scale artistic endeavors. Working from dwelling was the perfect answer so she engaged Wallace Architects to provide you with a scheme that may maximize the prevailing property.
Positioned in Lowry Bay, Wellington on a north-facing steeply sloped hillside overlooking the bay, the brand new studio occupies the basement stage of an current Nineteen Sixties home. This offered a gorgeous, secluded house and the chance for a brand new outside residing space immediately off the prevailing Residing Room.
A treehouse typology was adopted to seize the sense of being suspended amongst the tree cover. The brand new deck above cantilevers over the studio house under offers an overhang for shade and lined pergolas at each ranges providing shelter from the rain to both sit and benefit from the views or within the case of the studio deck, perform paintings involving chemical compounds.
On the coronary heart of this undertaking is the deep connection Jacqui and her household have with this place, their respect for the bushes, the stream, the ocean, the wharf, and the birds.
