A Morphing Shed

A Morphing Shed

A shed that morphs from an artists studio to a place to gather to a study or simply a place to entertain.


How? The porch for the shed can be moved or reconfigured depending on seasonal changes, mood, or purpose. The porch can be closed completely with its adjustable louvered folding door for privacy or when the weather is cool. The porch can be semi-opened or completely opened extending the space into the surrounding geography thereby creating a strong relationship between the indoors and outdoors. One can enjoy a book in the shade of the porch while enjoying the view of the outdoors if installed on a site with rich foliage. Thus, the porch can morph from one state to another and thereby infusing the surroundings with a particular mood.

The difference in height between the shed and porch allows maximum natural light to enter the interior spaces through the fixed glass. The structure is supported with a wooden frame. The roof of the porch has pergolas alternating with glass. The play of shadows from the roof is heightened by the similar response by the louvered folding doors in the front. Throughout the day as the sun moves from east to west, a dramatic effect is created within the interior space from the shadows cast at different angles by the sun.

A fitting component in a dream backyard
by: George

I miss the midwest. The backyards are huge and no backyard is complete without a shed. This would work really well for my dream backyard. In the summer it can morph into a little haven from the sun during bbqs. Maybe a woodworking shop. The possibilities are endless. The concept of a morphing shed is wonderful.

Great concept
by: Prem

The idea of the designer is really good . Having kept in mind the functionality as well as the aesthetics . The folding doors is good idea for optimal use of space. Also there is ample sunlight throughout the day which is an essential criteria I think. Overall its a Fantastic job !

This porch is very creative indeed.I like this when u open the porch or slide it, both the inside of the shed as well as in the porch is open to the surrounding.Both gets the advantage of it.Amazing Rendering too.

Nice but.... (take 2)
by: Anonymous

seems like a very climate dependent design. This might work in California, but what about the rest of the country where the temperature and the climate fluctuate really drastically? I worry about so many moving parts as well... Its beautiful but has turned a simple structure into a complicated piece of engineering.


PS: you shouldnt have the pull down menus default to 5!

A great sense of detailing!
by: Anonymous

A dynamic multifaceted approach,the aesthetics,the lighting,the angular sharp sides all bring out the perfect ambience for any occasion from a lounge to a study that brings out the required energy, picnic spot to a rain forest outhouse.

I see an A grade mind activity illustrated here.

All the very best to you!
