The new drawing studio at Arts University Bournemouth in Dorset, United Kingdom comes with a futuristic silhouette. Designed by renowned architect Sir Peter Cook and his office
The 1830-square-foot creative studio is open to all artists in the university, from animators to costumes designers to architects and was built as a place especially for interaction and exchange. Central to the idea of drawing, “light” was chosen as the theme for the building’s design.
A rear clerestory window offers ample light with inspirational views of the tree canopies, while minimalist interiors in white and gray leave the room a blank slate. The oddly-shaped blue exterior is made from steel and was built in conjunction with two other facilities — an animation studio and a lecture theater.
“Through such simplicity, the act of drawing becomes a calm and considered activity within the lively world of a very busy and creative institution,” the project developers said. [Photography courtesy of CRAB Studio]
