The Shed is a simple and elegant shelter that celebrates waste-free building through the use of prefabricated components. Made from a standard steel frame, modular walls, roof trusses and battens, this clever building in Springfield, Missouri, was built from a minimal kit of parts. Design collective Huff Projects erected the structure that can be used for anything from storing gardening tools to having a meal with the family or hosting a friend.
The Shed is protected from the elements by a continuous cladding all through its roof and outside walls. Almost like a second skin, the protection is made from white oak taken from the property’s own surroundings. Featuring one translucent end, the Shed also lets in plenty of sunlight to lessen the need for artificial lighting.
