Pivot Studio designed a contemporary remodel for an old shed, into an art studio and home office in the backyard of a house in Sydney, Australia.
Pivot Studio’s description
The project is for a secondary dwelling which will be used as an art studio and home office. The project is characterized by its high level external aesthetic detailing.
A black glazed brick is chosen as the base building material with a blonde timber wall paneling system used as a secondary decorative cladding.
The timber paneling is both decorative and functional with it being used as rotating timber shutters over the northern level 1 window which reveal splashes of colour and tone in a rotated position.
The paneling arrangement acts as a ribbon, wrapping and shrouding the building whilst providing notions of flow and direction through its fluid and curvilinear arrangement and articulation.
