The room is only a few square metres – just enough to fit an artist with an easel – but its irregular shape makes for a great studio. With doors and windows equipped with integrated blinds and the entire construction insulated from top to bottom, this building doesn’t get hot even in the middle of a heath wave.
The most important visual aspect of the project was the outside finish. For us it was the first time we had used this type of material – cement particle boards – but it was the only material that would definitely survive many years in these seaside conditions. This little garden studio is right on the beach, meaning that storms can send thousands of litres of salty water at high speed across the surface, this does not end well for many building materials.
The final result is unusual, attractive and unique. Passers by who walk on the beach are divided in their opinions. Some don’t get it, most of them love it, all of them look at it. The owners are delighted with the final result and use it as planned.
