Lomax Studio is inspiring, its design unconstrained by the modest budget. It sensitively reflects the two scales in the artist client’s work: industrial and domestic. Both are represented externally and internally, with the open-plan space subtly divided by the change in roof scale and the sculptural element that houses the bathroom. The studio reflects the client’s requirement of elevating ordinary materials to the extraordinary – scaffolding poles create the roof structure, for instance. Cut elements are minimised and carefully co-ordinated, as evident in the blockwork and the crow-stepped gables referencing the washhouse that formerly occupied the site. A witty, thoughtful design that truly represents the client’s artistic and spatial vision.
