The goal of the project was to re-purpose the existing tin shed [1] at the rear of a residential lot. Rather than just tearing the shed down and getting rid of it, Raffaello Rosselli [2] recycled [3] the original materials while paying respect to the shed’s structure. The shed was carefully deconstructed, and the exterior metal cladding was retained while the new two-story studio office and apartment were constructed. On the ground floor is a studio/garage along with storage and a bathroom. The upstairs offers a studio apartment and office complete with a kitchenette and full bath.

To complete the project, the original cladding was reinstalled on the facade in a puzzling array of color. New box windows framed with coreten steel fill the space with light [4] and provide a bit of sun shading with overhangs. Inside, the interior is raw and honest with a clean finish, white walls and plywood floors. Light bounces throughout the space.

What’s even better is that this studio is up for rent through airBnB [5], and you can stay here on your next trip down under.
