Studio Space by Nicolas Tye Architects
The studio’s building strategy is based on an elegant rectangle of predominantly glazed elevations capped and enclosed at each end by larch timber clad “book ends”. Cor-ten detailing further enhances the sense of place, reflecting the old, discarded agricultural machinery and steelwork of the barn.
The architects of Studio Space think on all, because also creating a reception and seating area for clients, a kitchen, storage, studio space, bathrooms, meeting rooms and a library and services pod. This studio is simple and very nicely designed and it stretches mostly in horizontal plane. The rectangular shape and the strict lines make it a regular and nice structure where everything is in its place. The wide back windows and doors open to the natural beauty of the surroundings and the studio kind of fits this scenery perfectly, not disturbing it.
The building is rather independent when taling about energy and it does not depend on the central supplying line. It has its own wind turbine offering the energy it needs. It also has a lot of eco technologies and is able to use the harvested rain water, uses eco painting, underfloor heating and everything that makes it modern and comfortable.
