Oceanic art within shows how mountains connect heaven and earth. The studio retreat consists of two pavilions. A separate introverted service pavilion sits within a hillock crater freeing the main translucent winged atelier. As it hovers like an insect, refracting shafts of light, it engages the mountain without bruising the landscape.
The pavilion connects mountain and stream – a spiritual retreat. As pastoral uses cease in the hinterland, there is a growing emergence of rural suburbia with large “Mac-mansions.`
Our architectural and urban design company is committed to projects that explore new and creative uses for rural land which is inland from the coastal edge. The idea of an art temple where spiritual workshops, art conferences, exhibitions and artists in residence can take place formed the brief for this project. Spectacular views and a strong relationship with topography forms the basis for artist creativity and inspiration. The project connects sky and earth and the architectural program allows the studio to “fly` with translucent wings. It is a separate entity to the hilltop as compared to neighbouring “heavy` domestic archetypes.
