‘The Light Shed’ has been conceived as a design and build project constructed by my assistant and I over the course of 21 days spread over 6 months

My approach was to focus on creating a holistic studio, office and business without the pressure of commercial letting and the rigid location that comes with owning an office. Focusing on family, play and collaborative work as a trifecta of interconnected programs that are organic and flow with the changing circumstances of my digitally nomadic lifestyle and studio ethos.
