An addition to an existing brick house, the Bush Studio was designed to act as an inspiring workspace for an artist.
Located in a quiet bush landscape, the lightweight timber structure hovers above the ground, perched in the canopy of native trees. The building is clad with sustainably harvested, radially sawn local hardwood that complements the surrounding environment.
The building is oriented to maximise the availability of light and allow passive heating through solar gain, while deep awnings and natural cross ventilation prevent overheating in summer.
In addition, the existing local ecology was unharmed by the new construction and was actively enhanced by revegetation.
