The architect Max Pritchard created a personal studio for his
practice in Australia with an interesting timber structure that was
preferred instead of extending a heritage listed elevated steel and
glass house that was 25 years old.
The garden structure spreads over two floors and has the shape of a
tower with a circular shape covered in plywood sheets and hardwood
battens on the jolts to express the timber frame of the building. The
interior repeats the pine plywood and hardwood touches with an opening
that offers a view of the tree tops nearby and sea in the distance for a
very relaxing shelter.
The sloping site permits access to the studio through a timber deck bridge with a path leading to the house as a great vantage point. The interior has an overhanging roof tor shading with louvers that allow natural ventilation and a custom made work-table sits in the center.
