A design for an artist and a curator.

The building was initially proposed as a repository for old works but has become a more accessible archive, a place to layout, show work and potentially a working space itself.

Given the range of activities the proposal economically encloses a large clear space with a sawn oak structural skeleton with intricate expressed mild steel connections.

The structure lifts the building in spirit and the geometry creates a dynamic sense of movement. The roof soffit gradually slopes to a hipped bay with a corner window with views into the old orchard, defining an intimate space within a larger whole; A space to talk around the artist work with potential clients and friends. A social or more collective end for the art.
