Artist's studio in Aberdeenshire

Dab Den have just completed an artist studio in Stathdon, Aberdeenshire, with a stunning view of the river below, definitely a room with a view. "The customer was looking for somewhere to do her artwork," explains Kat Byers from Dab Den. "There is a fantastic view down the river so the position of the Dab Den takes advantage of this. There is a Belfast sink in the built-in cupboard to allow her to do her paintings. No planning was required but building warrant was, due to the sink connecting into the existing drainage system, which means it is built to the standard of a new build house. There is also a lot of decking stretching out the front of the den, so when the bi-folding doors are fully open there is a very spacious floor area stretching out to the view beyond. The materials used are Siberian larch cladding and the doors are powder coated aluminium, with a thermal break in the frame to assist in obtaining a 1.3w/m2K u-value."

  1. Once again I must confess and say, this is a beautiful building, the quality of build is also above amazing! I love the way the cladding is different, yet designed to be hardy! The different use of building materials is completely in balance....perfection.
