Australian architects Edwards Moore have completed this glowing art studio in a car park.

Located in a residential car park outside a Melbourne apartment, the studio accommodates storage, a shower room, a toilet and kitchen facilities.

The front of the studio is clad in translucent fibreglass, causing the lights inside to illuminate the surrounding car park.

Small circular windows perforating the white render-covered rear of the structure create peepholes.

We also recently published proposals for another small artist studio, this time in Finland - see this project here.

The external skin is a combination of a white render finish and semi-translucent fibre glass sheeting to allow light to the interior whilst also relating to the adjoining building.

Internally the timber structure is expressed and partly lined with plywood.

Operable porthole windows (made from inspection hatches) provide ventilation and additional natural light.

    The inside looks so impressive – what a fantastic design!

    Any idea how much something like that would cost to build?

      I was the builder on the job – just over $110k.

    Very interesting design indeed. It is simple on the outside and inside, but the possibilities to use the space are endless.
