Artists studio Garage Conversion, Edinburgh

The Artists studio Garage Conversion project was to form a new studio space for an artist. Konishi Gaffney Architects repurposed the existing garage, infilled a new floor and the old garage door and fully insulated and improved the interior.

The project then became about the front elevation cladding, this becoming an abstract frontage, separated from the building like Buster Keaton’s 1928 film Steamboat Bill, Jr.

We wanted to build in timber and decided on Siberian Larch, setting up a rhythm of timber fins and horizontal cladding. Compositionally arranging a window, a garden gate, a base and top band detail with varying centres to make a pattern like a musical score.

The cladding installation was detailed and made by a brilliant shop joiner, Andrew Macdonald and by the client themselves.
