An artist's studio in a garden in Bagnolet, on the banks of Paris. In the garden of her main house, Sophie, ceramist, asked us to draw her new production and exhibition workshop. To avoid invading the beautiful garden with this new building, we decided to position ourselves against the wall. With a light wooden structure and a clearance game, we managed to create a small pavilion on two floors to separate the workspace from the exhibition space on the floor. The burnt wood cladding and the apparent wood structure remind us of the Japanese spirit to which Sophie is inspired by her ceramics.
