Atelier by Stocker Lee Architects
Alexander Zaxarov
Sep 24, 2019

Stocker Lee Architects designed a three-storey atelier in Rancate: partially inserted in the ground, the building seems suspended by a glazed ribbon.

Outside, the atelier is cladded by clinker bricks and tiles covering almost the totality of the building, leaving only a glass ribbon at the base that runs along the perimeter, giving the idea of a building lift from the ground. The atelier is distributed over three floors around a central block of concrete, which includes the stairs connecting the various spaces.

The interiors are connected to each other, allowing the sounds to run the full height and the zenithal light to cross the space and reach, thanks to a longitudinal cut in the roof, the lower floor, creating shades of light that change depending on the time of day.
