Tinshed

The humble tin shed is an iconic Australian structure. The project was to re-purpose an existing tin shed at the rear of a residential lot,
The shed in its current state was dilapidated and structurally unsound. The original tin shed was disassembled and set aside while a new timber frame was erected. The layers of corrugated iron accumulated over generations of repair were reassembled on three facades.

The project embraces that it will continue to change with time through rust, decay and repair.
