Architect Timothy Robinson offers a triumph of terrazzo at his new studio and workshop that has the perfect balance of tranquility and stylistic panache – enough to make any working-from-homer a little jealous.
The vibrant greens and layered lines of the lush tropical planting, mixed with the bold green terrazzo cladding distracts the eye just enough that the beige brick building behind the studio fades out of view.
Instead, the enormous windows skirted by textured elements invites the eye in. The simple beige, grey, and green palette is both refreshing and relaxing, encouraging the mind to ignore distractions and embrace creativity, focus, or tranquility.
The look of corrugated iron offers an industrial spin on an otherwise nature-centric design. The bespoke terrazzo cladding is flecked with white, black, and brown specks that reflect and absorb light to produce an enigmatic look that references the various hues of the surrounding greenery and the dappled look of the white gravel pathway.
