We were appointed to design and build a multi-purpose structure in the grounds of a Grade II listed former farmhouse in Hampshire. Long Sutton Studio is deliberately understated, sitting timelessly in its surroundings. Closer inspection however, reveals modern detailing which gives the studio a subtle, contemporary identity. The predominant material at Long Sutton Studio is timber, and here it is celebrated and showcased in its many forms: softwood and hardwood, laminated, planed and rough sawn. The striking interior provides a strong visual contrast to the simple exterior, with the structural elements being expressed almost as decoration.
