The Shed _ 2009
A Kit Of Parts
Serving as a counterpoint to the Curved House, the Shed is located on a repurposed Cul-de-sac adjacent to the residence. The construction method is an exercise in celebrating the logic and clarity of prefabrication. Conceived as a kit of parts, the elegant building’s steel frame combines modular wall components, roof trusses, and battens, all of which were assembled on site and clad with a rain-screen of White Oak taken from the property. This rain-screen wraps the walls, roof, and soffit and is expressed as a singular element. A galvanized metal fascia speaks to the structure beneath the skin. Polygal end walls with large operable doors complete the tripartite material composition.
