HOME OFFICE: an imaginative studio in a jungle garden
For many, the notion of a little, bright white studio
tucked into their garden
is pretty high up on the dream list.
And if you are one of these dreamers,
have a look at this imaginative studio
built into a jungle style garden in leafy Brisbane.
“The artist’s world is limitless.
It can be found anywhere,
far from where he lives or a few feet away.
It is always on his doorstep.”
— Paul Strand
Designed by Marc & Co Architects
in conjunction with, and for, their clients,
the stylist team Indigo Jungle,
the geometric studio was built in the front garden
of Indigo Jungle's owner Vanessa Cribb.
Built from simple materials, the exterior is painted deep blue
with strategically placed windows to provide
views onto the garden,
while low-level windows allow light to illuminate the floor
without providing glare to computer screens.
Zig-zag bracing is expressed internally,
with clever shelves running between the vertical angles,
and fold down desks adding extra desk space when required,
while the exterior cladding is cut into zig-zag lines to create cohesion
from interior to exterior.
It's rather clever,
and I imagine it's a marvellously illuminating place
to be creative.
