Four studios are arranged in two “L”-shaped volumes, creating a series of informal courtyards and in-between spaces, intended as places for impromptu discussion, fabrication or exhibition.

Framed by steel members, and clad in a cementitious rainscreen, the new studios evoke the formal language of vernacular Danish farmhouses, both in their steep gable roofs, a reference to traditional longhouses, and in their non-orthogonal, seemingly random, configuration.

Inspiration from architect:

An art, architecture, photography, and design school campus. The studio buildings are arranged to allow for the various disciplines to look at each other’s studios and share exterior porch and courtyard spaces.
