Marvell St Studio, Byron Bay
Marvell St studio, a granny flat for the client’s parents and friends makes the most of the left over space in the garden of a typical quarter acre block.
Designed to make the most of the subtropical climate, the building’s operable edges allow the studio to act as an auxiliary space to the existing house and open up to the garden, doubling as an outdoor pergola.
An additional element to the Studio was a small pool cabana space that ties the architectural elements of the backyard together.
Self-contained, yet encouraging inter-spatial conversation, the studio is a socially shared compromise that celebrates the Australian lifestyle.
