Artist Studio

Project: Ground Floor Artist Studio - Moseley, Birmingham

Client Needs

The client wanted a new artist studio in their garden, that was accessible via a side door from the house.

Proposed Plans

This was a one storey cladded building with an area of 100m2

Job Overview

Because we were replacing an old building, the first stage was to demolish the existing structure safely. This was carried out with the client and environment in mind ensuring all other buildings, external walls and utilities were not affected.

Once the old building had been demolished and all rubble cleared we could mark out the footings for the new studio. The old concrete base had to be broken up and cleared to get the floor down to the correct levels.

The new studio was to join the existing wall on the driveway end of the property, so the footings were dug on the two sides and at the garden end of the property.

Once the footings were passed by the building inspector, the concrete was poured and the block work carried out to form the studios foundations.

The timber frame was then constructed before the roof went on. The whole studio was metal cladded and the roof contained three velux windows to give the studio natural light. The studio also had a sliding patio door leading out into the newly landscaped garden.

DJK Projects carried out the first and second fix electrics along with the plumbing, ensuring the client had all the necessary lighting, heating and water. All underground waste and drainage was installed during the foundations stage.

The Artist Studio was completed in 8 weeks.

It has provided the client with a superb modern studio, that looks great both on the inside and the outside.
