About the project

Cedar Studio has been our smallest project to date and was awarded the Wood Award in the Stirling Society of Architects 2012 Design Awards.

The studio is built almost entirely from wood, from the railway sleeper foundations to the timber frame, cladding and cedar roof shingles.

Efficiency, affordability, sustainability and low-key design are emphasized, to suit the communally shared multi-use site within a patchwork of small back gardens. Timber was chosen for its practicality as a highly flexible, easy-to-work-with, economical and sustainable material; as well as for its aesthetic quality, which ties in well with the surrounding fencing and sheds.
