the studio, which will serve as one of moxon architects’ offices, is divided into two sections. one side is designated for private study and creative contemplation, while the other side fosters the social and collaborative side of architecture. the two premises are joined by a covered walkway.

poised to become the main headquarters for the studio, the facility uses a combination of finishes to establish a visual hierarchy and define the building structure. the studio proposal also includes over-sailing roofs and a combination of planted meadow and metal pitches to reference the distinctive architecture of the rural area.
