An Artist’s Residence Filled With the Sounds of Water

Perched on the edge of Britain, Midden Studio by Studio Weave is a surreal atavistic building that reveals its secrets slowly. The spiky zinc-clad artist’s studio is nestled by a stream on the west coast of Scotland. Midden Studio is the lovechild of native granite and the local buildings. Half a fancy creature with moldings and gables; half hard, freckled, and elemental. The granite rock surrounding the studio is echoed in the rusticated zinc.

A soffit light allows the artist to peer down through the work surface at the flowing water beneath, and the building is filled with the sound of water all year round from the Atlantic waves, the rain, and the drizzle. Structurally, the studio has been designed to withstand the extreme conditions of the site, and the raw zinc will age with dignity, becoming well-tuned with the landscape over time. The interior is as warm and clean as possible to facilitate the artist’s work.
