BALLARAT ST studio apartment

Conversion of part of a market to a studio/residence

Commissioned by a young photographic artist, this studio was fashioned out of the lofty roof space of the old Brunswick food market. A living/dining area forms the core, with a small kitchen to one side, from which a ladder ascends to a study. A darkroom and bathroom are tucked into the space beside the far staircase, which ascends to the bedrooms. The architect has used the simplest materials throughout, not only to save expense but also to create a blank canvas for the display and creation of the darkroom’s produce.
