Pottery Studio in Milthorpe, near Orange, NSW

This beautiful studio is used as a pottery workshop and display room. It measures approx. 140 square metres, has cathedral ceilings 6 metres high at the centre. The exposed timber trusses are made from recycled iron bark. The ceiling is lined with Ortech straw boards. The structure is built on a suspended slab with a wine cellar beneath it. We raised and rendered the strawbale walls for the studio. Local builder David Turk was the main contractor and can be contacted via turkhb@bigpond.net.au.

The picture above shows part of the steel frame, timber roof construction and Ortech straw panel ceilings. Bales are stored under the roof, ready for walls to be raised.
