Tom Jenkins' reveals new studio in C16th ruin

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + DATA] Tom Jenkins has revealed new photographs of this studio on the coast of Fife in Scotland

Built on the site of, and using stone from, a ruined 16th century millhouse, the studio incorporates the one gable end wall that remained intact from the original structure, to define a new courtyard.

On the upper floor an open-plan living, dining, and sleeping area with a bathroom, that has access to a covered balcony, is a self-contained apartment for guests. A garage and workshop are located on the lower floor, with level access to both floors made possible by the steeply sloping site.

The steel-framed and oak-clad roof references the ‘local agricultural “Dutch” barn structures, and also the railway carriages that used to travel along the coast - now a public coastal path in front of the site’.
