Surrounded by trees and other lush vegetation, this small and minimalistic building designed by Studiospazio contains a workshop as well as external space for two parked cars.
Four massive wooden panels: that was all Studiospazio needed to fulfill the clients’ wish for a hybrid workshop/parking space. Two of the wood elements stand parallel to each other, around 2.5 m apart. The other two panels are mounted at the respective ends of the elements below and join in the middle to become a sleek gable roof. What’s more, they cover the space below them on both sides. Both to the left and to the right, the roof juts – on each side to about the same distance covered by the central part (2.5 m). The connection between the four wood panels is formed beside the points of support, over two triangular glazed surfaces. These close off the small room underneath and let in the light.
"This composition avoids the enclosed space and allows the continuity of the garden to be perceived in all directions,’ explains the design team.
The inventive construction method reduces the visual scale of the structure, with two cars able to comfortably fit beneath the large roof.
"Despite its presence, the building doesn’t divide the plot, it rather becomes a device to connect with the neighboring environment," continue the architects.
