Classic Car Workshop and Showroom - Epsom (2000)

As one of the practice’s earliest and smallest completed buildings, this tiny single-storey workshop and showroom for a classic car enthusiast nevertheless responds with sensitivity to a very specific brief and restrictive site. Constructed in the grounds of a Harwood-built house in Epsom, the workshop was effectively designed around it’s contents – lathes, milling machines, etc.. and the spaces needed around them in order to circulate and operate them efficiently.

The workshop was designed to maximise naturally-lit working space while remaining cool and well-ventilated in the summer and warm and dry in the winter months.

Given the purpose of the building, it was an important requirement that measures could be taken to continually monitor and regulate the humidity of the interior. The brief also involved the detailed design of the work surfaces, one of which utilises a rare Bugatti benchleg.
