A split level garage with large store room above occupied the front of a suburban section. Its owners, living in the house behind, envisaged converting it into a self-contained studio space – for work, play or as a teenage get-away. The store room floor is removed, giving way to a lofty 3.5m high stud living area, with a mezzanine bedroom beyond. Services - kitchenette, bathroom, storage – are recessed along one side; on the other, a stairwell and two, west-facing verandas. The envelope is extensively glazed, finished with Macrocarpa trim and coloured panels.
