It’s always exciting to peep into an artist’s home, especially if the work itself also takes place within the walls. Our article takes you to Moscow, Berlin and a small Austrian town.
A contemporary artist’s studio | Moscow
The white-cube gallery-style studio was designed by the Russian architecture office Ruetemple at the request of a contemporary artist. The task was to create a living and working area where only white and black would appear and nothing would interfere with the intense concentration. The studio is a 75-square-foot room with a 5-foot ceiling, where the architects have also created a second floor for the bedroom and a seating area. On the first level, there is the artist’s studio, which is a white box in the middle of the apartment, as well as all the other practical units: a kitchenette, a bathroom and a storage room.
Ewelina Art Studio | Berlin
Polish artist Ewelina Makosa, an interior designer and contemporary artist, and designer Jan Garncarek, dreamed up their own workshop home from an old factory in Berlin. The building was probably a warehouse for aircraft parts during World War II. It stood empty for a long time, then an Irish carpenter rented out and renovated the property, dividing the area into several art workshops. Ewelina and Jan had just arrived on time to stop the full-scale renovation work, so they still managed to save the original walls and flooring. In the space, that they have furnished, vintage and design elements mix with Jan’s lamps and Ewelina’s pictures.
A sculptor’s workshop | Austria
In 2019, freelance sculptor Monika Rienoessl decided to move from the city of Vienna to Neuaigen, Lower Austria, to the country house where she grew up. She commissioned the Maximilian Eisenkoeck office in Vienna to carry out her dream house: a minimalist home with a white pavilion where the living space, exhibition space and workshop fit together. Keeping the old clay brick house, the architect completed the back with a new, bright building section.
