‘M’ STUDIO
An existing house with a fabulous garden.
There is no space to grow.
It is a question of how we support it on the ground.
With only one leg, creating balance.
Rising over a Canary palm tree, looking out at a guava, watering a dracanea, smelling azaleas,...

One single section, with two large heads.

One leg-staircase-storage-shelf-toilet, with four spaces around it.

Two interiors: the studio and the classrooms and two exteriors: the access threshold and the reading porch.

A neutral space, gray, which is open to the light in the morning and the afternoon.

The rest is achieved with the paintings: the hanging paintings, the smell of turpentine, the colors of the oil paints,....

A studio with one leg.
