A Place in the Shade

by Simon Smith
(Stoke-on-Trent, UK)

This shed is all about its relationship with its environment. The adjustable louvre panels to the front elevation can be tilted to give shade from the warmest summer sun or relief from the low winter glare. They can shade the veranda for sitting out with a glass of wine, or screen the glazed elevation for getting on with work inside.


The structure consists of elegant curved glulam timber crucks, opening up to glazing at the front. A standing seam copper roof and cedar shingle walls mean the building will age and mature along with its surroundings.

Looks good Si! Those louvre screens can be used as built in security shutters too for extra security!! Nice presentation by the way...

I like the idea of being able to interact with the building and change its appearance. sun glare can be a real annoyance in my office too so nice to see someone thinking about that.

I like the palette of materials and the fact they are all natural. Would look great in my garden!
