Holton Studios is six workspaces, the first phase of 31. It forms the edge of what will eventually become a communal courtyard space and picks up on nearby existing and agricultural buildings. Each unit is lined internally with birch plywood sheets. The main workspace is vaulted and generously proportioned. The size of each unit keeps it exempt from business rates, while internal party walls are constructed to allow each unit to be interconnected if necessary. Both end gables are clad in fine larch strips, stained Nordic red making a transition between surrounding red brick buildings and the semi-agricultural language of the studios.
