This small studio for sculpture acts as a visual sculpture itself by its shape and material. The bronze sculpture received their natural patina as a representation to the artist work. The use of raw and untreated materials contributes to the character of a scultpture studio. The façade panels are made from corten steel while the interior surfaces are made from birch plywood. This contrast between the inside and outside creates a different experience. The bright box on the inside with good light conditions and views creates a inspiring work experience.

The robust character of the project stems from the reference to the typology of the existing barn where the new box (studio) is inserted. The visible steel structure that supporting the studio also contributes to the industrial look. It's functionality match its aesthetic.
