Backyard art studios Sydney


Melwood Art Studios

Space to focus and create. Without distractions. 

A dedicated backyard art studio is what every artist needs. 

As an artist, you can probably relate to this: you set up your workspace within your home, on the dining table or in the living room, and try to focus, blocking out the distractions around you. It works, kinda. Until someone else comes and needs the space. You have to pack everything up and put it away before you’re done. It’s frustrating.

You think “If only I had somewhere where I could leave my work setup, and not have to pack it away! Somewhere I can escape to, to avoid distractions and create my best work when I’m in the zone”.

If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place. 

A Melwood art studio is the quick and easy way to get the space you need.

We help artists create a dedicated backyard art studio that allows you to focus and produce your best work, without distractions.  And we have been doing it for over 40 years.

  • Made for you. Hundreds of window and door configurations to maximise natural light.
  • Personal design advice at our Display Centres or over the phone.

Claudia’s backyard art studio is a multi-purpose space that is used by her whole family. Claudia says “It’s the spare room that our main house doesn’t have. We use it for guests, parties, quiet afternoon naps, as a painting studio and just to get “away”. It’s a fabulous addition to our house.”
