The project is for a secondary dwelling which will be used as an art studio and home office. The project is characterized by its high level external aesthetic detailing. A black glazed brick is chosen as the base building material with a cedar wall paneling system used as a secondary decorative cladding. The timber paneling is both decorative and functional with it being used as rotating timber shutters over the northern level 1 window which reveal splashes of colour and tone in a rotated position. The paneling arrangement acts as a ribbon, wrapping and shrouding the building whilst providing notions of flow and direction through its fluid and curvilinear arrangement and articulation.
