It is a well-known fact that Alchemy Architects have established a very good reputation within the prefabs industry and this is probably the reason why this Studio offering has been so well received by the market. As the name of the building clearly suggests, Studio is designed for a minimum number of people although this certainly should not detract from its quality.
What is the basic design of Studio?
As you will have probably gathered through the descriptive name of this prefabricated house, Studio is based on a very small number of rooms. As is normally the case with studio apartments, the building does not have a specific bedroom but simply benefits from a sleeping compartment. In short, this means that the bed is slightly tucked away from the main dining and sitting area, with no partition wall or even a curtain separating them. Of course, many people opt to implement some sort of divide, whether it is some sort of material or a moveable wall. In other areas, the kitchen is part of the middle area of the building and is made from modern components, while there is a bathroom that is part of its own room.
In terms of the exterior, plenty of glass is prevalent of the front of the building. Four glass panels shine through to the main area, while decking stretches out in front of this to make very aesthetically pleasing outside space. The other parts of the building can be made from a number of different materials, with the end buyer given the choice, although most people simply decide to purchase a corrugated steel shell which is weathered and comes in several colors.
How much does Studio cost?
The guide price provided for Studio ranges between $79,000 and $89,000. The reason there is such a difference in the price is due to the various different options that one can select and as highlighted previously, some people will decide to utilize a different material on the outside shell and this could alter the price. The choice of floor, appliances and bathroom fixtures can also affect the final cost although most people are more than satisfied with the general standard that Alchemy Architects provide.
For those people who find that this price is not affordable, it can be possible to rent the Studio from various realtors.
A summary on Studio
Even though Studio is an exceptionally small prefabricated house, it has still proved very popular and this is not just in a domestic sense. While the plans for the building may indicate sleeping compartments and the like, the fact is that a lot of businesses have decided to use Studio for commercial reasons, for an office for example. It is clear to see that Studio is made out of very sturdy materials and this means that many cannot believe how inexpensive it is to purchase. Moreover, when such pristine fixtures and fittings and a pleasant outside decking area accompany the building, it's no surprise to see Studio performing so well in the prefabricated market.
