The heartwarming story behind this slick ‘alien-like’ studio – and what it was originally intended to house
- Unusual looking studio accompanies a property in the Melbourne countryside
- Was commissioned by the previous owner to store artwork from his late wife
- Studio designed by leading Melbourne architects Peter Hogg and Toby Reed
An ‘alien-like’ studio accompanying a three-bedroom property in the countryside is attracting plenty of interest from potential home buyers and investors.
RT Edgar agent Matthew Bourke revealed the ‘Arrow Studio’, which sits next to a home in Tylden, roughly an hour north-west of Melbourne’s CBD, has people talking.
‘It was designed by Melbourne architects Peter Hogg and Toby Reed and its appearance is definitely a talking point,’ Mr Bourke told Daily Mail Australia.

‘Originally the owner used the studio as an ode to his late wife. It was used to store her artwork after she passed away, as a means of honouring her memory.
‘The family has recently chosen to sell the property, and the studio is one of many redeeming features.
‘It could be a perfect space for those who are working remotely, or even a little haven for a permanent getaway.
‘Others have also suggested it could be a place for teenagers to enjoy their own space.’
Mr Bourke also revealed ‘plenty’ of interest has come from around different parts of Melbourne.
An architect description revealed the details behind the inspiration of the studio.
‘The Arrow Studio was conceived as an out of focus, reflective vortex in the Australian landscape,’ the description read.
‘At night, the Arrow projects light through the timber slats at each end and lights up the garden like a cinema projection booth in a field.’
The current asking price for the property in Tylden is between $560,000 and $615,000.
