A garage conversion into a workshop and creative space

Rosefield Studio is a workshop, creative studio, den and sleepover space for kids and adults to hang out in.

Originally a stone garage at the end of the garden, it has been converted and extended, and sectionally now has a mezzanine space that looks out over the park, which was possible spatially by constructing an asymmetrical pyramidal roof designed not to overshadow neighbours.

The placing of the studio at the end of the long garden has created a new relationship between home life and work, with a visual connection to the living space at the back of the house.

The studio also connects to the garden, making it much more used, with the outdoor bench along the long glass facade a favourite place to sit in the sun.
