This “Little Brick Studio” is a building consists of a garage on the main floor and a studio above and was designed to blend with the existing house and the small houses in its neighborhood in Melbourne, Australia yet also has its own character. This small studio was finished with wonderful textured bricks inspired by the nearby brick factories in Abbotsford. A very interesting and beautiful exterior design with the bricks protrude from the wall. Also, the white color given to this wall looks so warmth and welcoming when it is combined with the dark color of the fence and the natural brown color for the fence, the pool deck and the windows’ frames.
This studio was designed to be small enough so the footprint is minimal. Also, the height was also limited to prevent overshadowing. This studio was built to respect its small houses behind, to not quite disturbing the existing space yet flexible enough to change with the growing family needs.
The architect MAKE Architecture also built the studio as though it was a new house with its own address. Instead of creating a new garage door that faces at the rear, the look of the door seems that the garage door is a new entrance door. The house has gotten that such impression thanks to the small brown wooden door, the recessed design, the overhanging studio volume and the dark color of the door that mimic the color of the existing fence. As a whole, this studio looks as if this is a new building with its own address.
This arrangement seems has accomplished its goals. The space near the pool seems to be a perfect space to spend some fun times with family. The wooden deck and the fence for the pool are great to blend the new studio with the existing house since these have similar color with the windows’ frames of the new building.
