Sliding glass doors with wood frames open to reveal the living quarters. Inside there’s a fold-down bed that blends into the wood wall, a small kitchenette and a dining space.

At the rear of the building, there’s a 4000-litre rainwater tank that collects water for the studio’s toilet, washing machine and garden irrigation.

The exterior of the studio that faces the garden is clad in a warm hardwood timber (blackbutt ) panelling, while Zincalume corrugated iron wraps around the remaining three sides of the structure, protecting it from the elements.
