MURCUTT GUEST STUDIO PLAN These drawings are from an architect, Glenn Murcutt, who uses hand sketches to portray his designs. This particular work was designed as a guest studio located New South Wales. The section that was selected for us to construct a 1:1 structure was the bathroom. The bathroom was spit into four sections: top right, bottom right, top left and bottom left. My group was appointed to section 4. The purpose of this activity is to build a full size section of the selected area using the drawings provided.
STRUCTURES TO LOOK AT: - cantilever - skillion roof
STUDS vertical; smaller than posts
NOGGINGS horizontal beams on different levels for practical reasons. Can
be nailed in easily and stops vertical walls from

In the first week of Built Detail, we were introduced to the drawings and designs of Glenn Murcutt who is an Australian architect. Even though he produces residential and institutional work over Australia, most of them are based in New South Wales. His works are not only known within Australia, but it also has a worldwide influence. Murcutt Guest Studio, Kempsey (NSW):
- built in 1992 - he used an existing old house that was already there
The drawings that were included had plans and elevated diagrams that explained some of the materials required as well as the dimensions. After getting familiar with his drawings, we had to come up with a list of materials that would need to be purchased to build the section that was chosen. In our second workshop, we were split into four groups, where each group was allocated with a portion of the selected area of the drawing that happened to be the bathroom area. We used a scaled ruler to figure out the drawings dimensions and drew it on a large plank of wood. The marking made on it would later be cut, therefore are used as guidelines. Each individual group had their own areas to draw their 1:1, and later we would have to conjoin the top and bottom walls, therefore it was important for us to measure correctly in order to join the walls together.
