dan brill architects is a recently established studio winchester, UK. the firm recently completed its first building, an artist’s workshop known as the ‘colour factory’. the single story building has a small footprint, but loads of tiny architectural details that add interest. working in a small budget, the studio worked with simple materials and construction methods. the interior walls are structural plywood, while the outside is clad in coloured polycarbonate rodeca. the plywood is perforated allowing light to enter in, while the outside remains water-proofed all around thanks to the polycarbonate. this innovative combination cut costs tremendously by eliminating the need for window fixtures. the building hosts workshops for community children and adults in a range of artistic mediums. ‘colour factory ‘has been shortlisted for the architect’s journal’s small projects exhibition that runs february 5-27 at new london architecture, london. http://www.danbrillarchitects.com http://www.thecolourfactory.org.uk
