霍桑工作室,美国,PRODUCTORA & Part Office

这个位于加州帕萨迪纳的历史住宅花园中的小工作室,是建筑评论家克里斯托弗-霍桑的图书馆。在2018年离开《洛杉矶时报》的全职职位后,他把他的藏书带回了帕萨迪纳的房子,并要求我们重新考虑他花园中车棚后面的一个小结构:它必须作为一个阅读和写作工作室。不过,在需要的时候,它还需要作为一个小型的客房单位。

This small studio in the garden of a historic residence in Pasadena, California, houses the library of architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne. Upon leaving his full-time position at the LA-times in 2018, he brought back his collection of books to his house in Pasadena and asked us to re-think a small structure behind the carport in his garden: it had to serve as a reading and writing studio. Still, it needed to function as well as a small guest-unit when required.

该设计由一个连续的蓝色元素组成,包含了灵活的书籍存储空间、书桌和通往小浴室的通道,与不规则的屋顶体量一起定义了一个清晰的地平线。

The design consists of a single continuous blue element that incorporates the flexible storage for books, a desk, and access to a small bathroom, defining a clear horizon with the irregular pitch roof volume.

同时,工作室的特点是这些蓝色的书架包裹着它的矩形空间,丸状的浴室被不间断的白色方砖网格所包围。光线通过一个单一的玻璃夹层窗过滤到浴室里。它在两个内部空间之间产生了视觉上的连续性,同时又不允许淋浴的湿度到达书本。工作室向花园中的天井开放,作为写作室的室外延伸。

At the same time, the studio characterized by these blue bookshelves wrapping around its rectangular space, the pill-shaped bathroom surrounded by an uninterrupted grid of white square tiles. Light filters into the bathroom through a single glass clerestory window. It generates a visual continuity between the two interior spaces while not allowing the humidity of the shower to reach the books. The studio opens up towards a patio in the garden that serves as an outdoor extension of the writing studio.
