a shed for outdoor living
The shed for outdoor living is a 6m long shipping container reimagined into a habitable and fully functional house.
Although the space has a compact nature, it opens its many faces to the outdoors. Its operable facades invite views of the surrounding landscape while offering shaded areas around the house.
Each moment has a distinct view and sensation. The skylight allows stargazing from bed; the living room opens up and becomes an extension to the terrace, transforming the chimney into a campfire. Horizontal bi-folding shutters become roofs, creating delightful outdoor spaces protected from sun and rain.
