How to use the ruins of a very old building ?
The studio is located in a small English town and was developed by a wonderful company. It is located in Snape Meltings, where the music school is famous, and is a project that uses the ruins of a very old building, which will surely interest our visitors.
Dovecote Studio is part of the world-renowned music university town founded by Benjamin Britten in abandoned industrial buildings on the Suffolk Coast.
It was inspired by the almost abstract landscape of reed beds on the border between land and sea: the ruins of a 19th century dovecote are located directly on it. One of the best design projects transforms them and infuses them with Victorian style. A new home inside an old one is a very exciting idea. To do this, ten steel beams were brought together, like a fuselage structure in a structure that was erected next to the ruins and then inserted into them.
The building is completely welded into one common part, like a ship’s hull. This was necessary in order to achieve optimal resistance to weather conditions. The structure is sheathed from the inside with simple plywood.
A large and easy-to-read window on the northern part of the roof provides ample light for artistic activities, while the small platform of the first tier with a magnificent writing table has a glazed corner, made like a window and awakening the imagination, from which the area is visible from the swamps to the sea.
The only living space that can be used as a place for everyday life for artists is a simple double room with a compact stylish kitchen . Musicians for rehearsals and artists to showcase their talent are provided with a special space with a large entrance door to the adjacent courtyard, from which you can make a temporary but cozy exhibition space.
Only the minimum necessary repairs were carried out to stabilize the existing debris for the new inserted structure. The decaying windows were left alone and the vegetation stretching across the building was protected to allow it to continue its natural aging and decay process. Which adds even more romance to the image. Water flowing between old and new structures is directed to accessible drainage points at door sills.
The entire structure is 1.2 x 2.4 m sheets with regular stepped welded joints into which the door and windows are inserted.
The walls and roof panels were welded together alongside the commemorative remains of the structure and placed inside it.
The interior walls and ceiling are insulated from the ancient structure with great care so as not to succumb to the process of destruction and to preserve their appearance for a long time. They are elegantly lined with plywood for greater comfort. Its sheets also form an excellent staircase , balustrade and mezzanine structure.
As a result, a tree box was created within the space of the ruins.
