Colour Factory

From Dan Brill Architects, this garden office is in the enclosed garden of the Winchester-based artists’ collective the Colour Factory (five professional artists, working in a variety of media including visual arts, textiles and contemporary jewellery), a workshop studio space used to offer classes for local residents for the delivery of regular and ongoing classes for the local community.Here's what the architects say about the build:
"Driven by an extremely challenging construction budget of only £15,000, the 25m2 building has relied on the use of a minimal materials palette to maximum effect. To this end, the building is comprised of a timber and plywood structure clad in translucent, colorful polycarbonate panels that reflect the ethos of the client organisation. Apertures in the plywood provide pools of coloured light to the interior during the day, and glowing circles of colour to the exterior at night."
