Description by ASWA.
Year: 2017.
Area: 49 m².
The studio has used metal sheet panels as the main material to clad this compact office throughout its wall and roof. The one-story asymmetry hip roof studio holds a 49 m² square-shaped plan with a 6 m² square punctured court inside. This off-center courtyard is determined by the required width and height of the surrounding spaces regarding their functions.
Shape and form of the building represent a humble character of the studio, and its idea of the ideal working atmosphere which are derived from the experimental design in the way to hide from the bustling outside street with minimum openings, yet to surprisingly open itself to the inner green space.
This courtyard allows the natural ventilation to go through the office space, as well as the natural light that contributes beautiful shade and a great view for the studio. It also lives with a natural ecosystem by inviting bird, squirrel, butterfly, frog, etc. to reside in its central green space.
