Morning Glass Designs

Morning Glass Designs design and produce (and indeed repair) lovely contemporary stained glass as well as running courses on the subject. It is run by Gordan Watt from these lovely new shedworking premises in rural Aberdeenshire designed by Coast2Coast Architects - the build has been nominated for the RIAS Design Awards 2012 Forestry Commission Scotland Wood for Good Award. Here's what they say about it:
"The studio comprises a number of workshop spaces and a small office, located in a newly planted woodland paddock adjacent to the artists’ home. Conceived as a zero-carbon minimalist timber structure set in the woodland landscape this building is constructed entirely of locally sourced timber materials. Over the years it is intended that the timber weathers naturally and the building it-self fades back into the camouflage of the trees."
The studio is clad in larch and has a tin roof - inside is an office, studio, glass store and workshop covering around 75m2 and the whole thing has large sliding doors with lovely views across the neighbouring fields and woods. Coast2Coast say that local timber suppliers, expertise and craftsmanship has been used throughout.

  1. An excellent timber piece we got here. The polish is well done and it looks cozy on the inside.

  2. Very pretty!! I'm working on my home office as well; I need to add more ME into it!
