Super Shed

by James Hall
(Salt Lake City, Utah, USA)

The Super Shed is full of special features.


It sits higher off the ground to provide the inhabitants with better site lines and natural ventilation.

It has a second skin that mimics the bark of the tree that shades it, and provides an extra layer for thermal and moisture protection.

It has a flat habitable roof with an interior sloped membrane that drains water creating a dry interior.

The shed has two volumes that provide numerous configuration possibilities, and the roof provides a beautiful space to relax and enjoy the surrounding nature.

A box
by: Anonymous

This shed looks like a couple of square boxes that the designers hammered a hundred or so boards onto at random.

Fantastic!
by: Slick Rick

I love the exterior aesthetic! It's great how you pulled the skin back to reveal what I'm assuming are windows. I'd love to have this in my yard!

cool for construction
by: Anonymous

i agree with the previous response, a little too busy just for the sake of busyness? seems like a typical kieran timberlake project. congrats for a real construction though!

sorry, no offense, but it's too busy for me, not aesthetically pleasing.

Well done.

Very provocative. Is that a small window on the bottom right? I wish we could see the interior? The outer skin must make it easier to maintain temperature inside.

Inventive!
by: Outdoor Admirer

This design is innovative for an auxiliary building! Using the vertical lines to draw the eye into the surrounding trees and sky is lifting and encouraging. The numerous openings and portals draw one to enter. The interior features are not apparent from the exterior so curiosity compels exploration. The exterior materials are sleek yet textural. Well done!
