Coated galvanized panels with embossed designs this building, built partly over a stream, is the study of an artist and is located on the west coast of Scotland.
Designed by Studio Weave, Midden Studio is a building perched on the coast of Britain, is based on the old structure of a dunghill which collected manure from nearby stables in the Victorian period.
The artist is very attached to the site, and much of his practice is associated to the peoples and places, so the architects have melted the study with the landscape. Remembering at the same time the agricultural vernacular buildings nearby, the granite rocks that dot the landscape, and the flourishing of the 'Scottish Baronial' style, the new study is to plunge into silence in this ancient landscape, revealing its details surreal on closer careful: the overhang that seemingly floats above the creek, gables and moldings twins disturbing echo of stone.
Midden Studio is the lovechild born between granite and local buildings. Half a fantasy creature with moldings and pediments; half hard, freckled and elementary. The granite rock that surrounds the study echoes zinc rustication. The study next all'Allt ant-Sionnaich, a fast flowing creek, a glass surface allows the artist to see through the work plan the water flowing under the building is filled with the sound of water throughout year.
The pattern coating rusticated diamond comes from the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara, from the Church of the Gesù Nuovo in Naples, but the Castle Crichton in Midlothian, was inspired by the austere facade south.
Structurally, the study was designed to withstand the extreme conditions of the site, and zinc crude will grow old with dignity, remaining well harmonized with the landscape over time. The interior is cozy and clean as possible, to facilitate the work of the artist.
