An Urban Storefront With A New Approach To Business.
This precedent a very useful one to look at as it takes an old urban storefront and repurposes it for a live/ work space. The studio is placed in what would have been the front of the store and features the same shape that it had as a functioning store.
The layout of the space is similar to the previous example in that it creates a separation between live and work. The difference is that design is contained to one floor, as opposed to many. It has only one wall dividing the living space from the vision of the public passing by the studio, but it is sufficient enough to provide privacy. Apart from this wall, everything is very open plan.
