Studio 1 is on the top floor at the north west end of the building overlooking the beach. The walls are part masonry, part timber-framed, and it has a large north-facing window and skylight. An additional skylight and west facing window help to bring light to the back of the studio.
The footprint of the studio once included Studio 15 as well, but it was subdivided as part of the recent renovation project. Access is via a new bridge from the main road which spans over the ramp down to the cellars, and includes a couple of steps.
Previous occupants include: Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Roy Conn.
