Blue Mountains CLT Studio

Design King Company

This little building sits quietly looking over the Megalong Valley, looking like it has just landed and is the culmination of many dedicated hours working on an approach to affordable housing using prefabricated cross laminated timber construction. This particular building will be an artist’s studio providing a much-needed teaching and painting space. Clad in recycle timber the building recedes into its’ semi-rural environment and like the “Tardis” seems to expand on entering. Thermal and acoustic performance were carefully calibrated to provide a high-performance building in an environment that is subject to extremes in weather and temperature.
