The conversion of an existing back yard structure to create a self-contained studio residence and workshop at garden level. The design circulates around the movement between levels, a minimal intervention that incorporates both functional and living activities, maximising the use of incidental spaces and surfaces.
The timber stair weaves upwards, enclosing storage and bathroom areas beneath, above a living and kitchen platform with slide-out bed beneath the destination, with views over the existing gardens and access to an elevated external living space. An unusual, dynamic and inspiring habitat.
