The studio is a masterpiece in warm ochre. Built from locally-sourced hoop pine, the studio is not the first cylinder Pritchard has designed. He admits to using the circular form in other projects, as he told Dezeen Magazine: “I guess I like the combination of pure forms–the linear pavilion of the house contrasting with circular.”

Pritchard opted to build the studio himself among the trees, taking great pride in bringing his design into the real world. He believes that being involved in building helps architects better understand materials and design concepts as they apply to actual structures. Judging by the aesthetics of his elegant little studio, Pritchard has learned a lot over the years.
