DD Artist Studio, Mountain Creek
The DD Artist Studio is a residential renovation and addition to an existing small lot house on the Sunshine Coast. The Artist desired a space of solitude from the rest of the family that also referenced the typology of the Parisian loft studio. The design brief required the resolution of the client’s need for light and the protective ambience of the nurturing womb. The result is a second storey addition over the garage lined with fibreglass on one side and lime-washed plywood on the other side and curved ceiling.
Programmatically, the wet area and kitchenette is located at one end of the studio and the office and chaise lounge at the other with the “Juliette balcony” overlooking the street. The addition also required the renovation of the existing one family bathroom and powder room into a master ensuite and shared ensuite for the teenage daughters.
