Artist’s studio in Devon

This oak painting studio - built mainly off-site and then reassembled - was designed for Lady Anne Field by Hoare, Ridge & Morris to sit in the Capability Brown-designed gardens of her home in Devon. According to the architects: "Its quiet palette of materials helps it to merge with its wooded backdrop in longer views, while its recessed façade allows the use of full glazing without glare in the wider landscape... Conceived as a contemporary folly or temple within the wider landscape, it sits somewhere between being a large piece of fine furniture and a garden building."

Those interested in building regs and permission will be pleased to hear that the design process involved extensive negotiation with English Heritage. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
