Hoy Poy Studio

This small studio space has been both duly and dually considered. Duly considered because of its former use by artists-in-residence and the resultant decay within a heritage fabric, and dually by two differing design practices with varying purposes.

Hoy Poy Studio

It is the first collaboration between vittinoAshe and Studio Field and the result is a series of spaces that capture both the inherent condition of each unique room as well as intensifying the specific program of each. It is attempting to convey a message of conservation that allows for its entire history to be bared and is an important understated part of the William St streetscape.

Hoy Poy Studio

Approximately half of the budget was allocated to ‘making good’ parts of the building that would further decay and the other half on the introduction of utilitarian systems such as the shelving, work tables, kitchenette as well as more custom items such as the lighting and loose furniture.

The entry space is dark and is a transition from the bright red brick exterior, it mediates the experience between the two main rooms and displays the wares of the two design backgrounds. It is the space that houses the kitchenette and coffee machine and is the gathering space for the ‘workers’.

Hoy Poy Studio

The large working space is conceived of as cloud like, both suspended and serene. All ‘ruin’ is painted out from the level change of the entry; floors, walls and ceiling and a smooth single work surface is introduced to accommodate both practices. The far room, with its watermarked wall is a counterpoint to the white room and is a space for meetings, lunches and social events. The distraction of the rusty wall contrasts the otherwise smooth clean surfaces. The particularities (or peculiarities) within each of the spaces are illuminated and the black thread in some ways ties all the spaces together.
