Australian practice Branch Studio Architects have created their own unique workspace with a rusty exterior and magnificent views. Located within the state of Victoria, their working shelter is made from recycled corrugated iron boards collected near the site. Its hard greenish-blue tinted shell contrasts with the sleek clean interiors and ages gracefully with time.
Branch Studio’s Nicholas Russo and Brad Wray constructed their countryside office in Victoria with old corrugated iron collected from the paddocks surrounding the site. In contrast with its rough exterior, the interiors are bright and the furniture was custom made from laser-cut plywood featuring burnt black edges. Big floor to ceiling windows let natural light fill every corner of the space while providing the creative duo with peaceful views into the surrounding orchard.
The sleek natural interiors oppose the shelter’s rusty shell with floors made from raw plywood and walls painted pristine white. The workspace’s total area is 270 square foot – enough space to fit a desktop for three people, a meeting area, toilets and a foyer. A refuge for ideas, the studio takes direct inspiration from staring at the surrounding nature.
