The Portic-Shed

by Lise HOANG
(Bristol, UK)

The shed is a play area for children and/or quiet area for adults.


It is made of timber, with 4 pairs of portic and curvy timber walls.

Two areas, indoor and (covered) outdoor, can be used at any time, depending how people feel.

The roof is made of polycarbonate as well as vertical translucent panels.

Vegetation are growing onto the portic and the horizontal timber boards.

The shed can be smaller size or bigger size depending on how many portics you want.
Dimensions shown are 6mx3m with 2.5mx3m for outdoor area.

Atmosphere is created by the timber on the front and side elevations. Vegetation on these two elevation will soften the light and would give some privacy without hiding what is happening.

I have completed a review of all of the Shed's within this competition and can honestly say this is a clear winner.

It has been designed in a very sympathetic approach with some very unquie features.

I genuinely feel that this design is a winner! When can buy one!!

Good luck.

Very nice !
by: Kher

The shape of the cabin is original. The polycarbonate roof is a very good idea, it may well be in the interior while enjoying the light of day. I also like to have divided the portic-shed, into two parts. The plants on the walls are very trendy, porch-hut fits perfectly with nature. The concept is innovative and very interesting!

Great but unfinished look; and the glass-roof is not so good idea in the green field and for not good weather

Magnifique
by: Ben

A la fois simple et classe, s'intègre parfaitement à la nature. L'utilisation du bois et de parties vitrées apporte beaucoup de chaleur et de tranquilité.
Idéal pour prendre l'apéro entre amis.

Interplay
by: JB

Pushing the boundaries and preconceptions of a traditional shed. I like the interplay between solid and void; diffusion of light. Good concept.

imagination
by: delphine

transparent et en même temps caché par la nature...
impression de chaleur (par le bois, le côté sauna par les lattes) et la fraicheur par cette nature omni présente
très beau projet
petit abris de jardin qui pourrait devenir une petite cabane ou il fait bon lire, un jardin d'été ou pourquoi pas une cuisine d'été au milieu de la nature
j'adore...
merci pour cette grande respiration

Love the "green" walls and it's flexibilty!
To have so much light and outdoor space,
aswell as indoor space is a good idea.
A real retreat! Well done Lise.

Great design
by: Steve

I really like the secluded semi-outdoor space you've created in conjunction with the more usual interior space. Would make a wonderful addition to any garden.

light and light
by: jeremy

I like the idea of a building that seems to move with the wind, the wave transparent in agreement with nature. Simplicity has a good architecture, always.

I quite like the idea, it really changes from traditional shed. A Contemporary touch would fit well in my garden.

Great Idea
by: Anonymous

I love the curvy shape of the walls which I think would be a more natural fit into any garden rather than the normal straight-sided shed.

As a gardener, I really like the idea of natural light from the roof allowing seedlings to develop and creating a pleasant sheltered place to sit and/or work.

Also love the 'living walls' which increase growing space and, of course, change the appearance of the shed through the seasons.

Great idea and good design!

Really interesting Natural design
by: John

really the idea of sky light, and how the growings vegetation is creating a natural space, the shed is becoming real part of a landscape and not just drop on a land as it is too often the case.
