Serender Shed

Serender Shed

The serender shed is a piece of next to nature primitive formation that has been lifted 2 meters above the ground to make it more breezy and be isolated on this light pillars to provide lack of footprint on the earth. It camouflages its disposition with the colors of rainbow.The main thought of mine is to achieve diversity of human being with the colors of rainbow that we can define the visual space of our perceptions on this spectrum of prisma. Therefore,the concept, it is pointed through into reflection on prisma. Light is connected with the origin of my space and symbolizes itself in every point,light as the beginning of reality,it is a symbol of renewal and source of life is presented.


As the sun moves through its daily arc,some places on this shed may mostly remain in the shade,while other parts may be in the sun all day. So the space is enclosed by 16 sprayed dyed wing panels in the coherence of rainbow spectrum which are optional flipping on their axis 360 degrees according to decision of usage. It can be closed altogether to get some privacy or at nights to sleep full of tranquil,etc. At the same time it can be opened totally for reaching more scenes and freshness of nature or you can release it as a kinetic,improvised shed which means that might be oriented by natural influences and you might just want to avoid against to impact of strong and cold wind and/or obtain some sublime sunlights in your recumbency or deep meditation due to your expectations. You can organize your own position as long as you can be functional, rational or creative, different orientations might support different beings and compositions to make space totally versatile within its possibilities. Space can gain many thoughts in terms of thinking spirit of architectural and is able to handle providing eco-consicious of human being.

Changes in lighting conditions indicate the course of time,per day and per season. Atmosferic conditions determine the colour and brightness of light,as seen on your view sometimes it can be seem as golden mists and tinted steams or haze up to your perception.Light always creates space,patterns and atmospheres.The manipulation of natural light,both within internal of panels and openings are one of the almighty meaning for me, to create unsteady ambiance and variations.Poetic and pastoral impressions and expressions might be visible ?in the genius of the place?.

One of my best scenario and aim is to make my shed house as a landmark in the middle of a vast landscape. It might be a highly visible element in the landscape with its stirring harmony of colors that is perfectly remembered as a mental image with vivid presence of disposition.It might be a sign of welcome or unexpected experience with its unknown and unpredictable invitation. Because human perception and the experience of spaces involve the senses such as feeling, hearing, seeing and balancing. People are helped to recognise scenes and places by a wide range of memories as fear, delight, comfort, take a rest or other experiences.

Simple.Strong.Versatile.
by: Marcin

Nice concept.Like the idea of respect of nature by the simplicity of the object which is situated on the ground in a kind of levitation by the 4 "sticks".

Hut
by: Jen

This is more of a hut than a shed i think. No real storage space.

good idea
by: Anonymous

I like the idea of the transformation of the walls which open up or close the the surroundings. A lot of light can enter and is brought inside the space in a colourfull way. Nice idea adaptable to any kind of surroundins or use!

Fwd:Strong Concept
by: H.Baran

Thank you for your brilliant comments C.J.As you said there is some pieces in my design i couldnt feature literally neither image nor text, bcz proposal was lacking of sufficient space to submit everything.You have tought that the space is not enough for actual uses, you cant evaluate the space efficiently.At closed box condition of shed you can get 16 metersquares overall and i actually added store at the bottom,it is attached to floor,you can put daily or vital things as water,foods,mat,sleeping bag,books,gas mantel,hygienic things etc.

My idea is pointed to spiritual healing and cures due to hardeness of dailylife,enforcement of common habits.No electricity,no technology around you,nothing comfortable maybe according to urbanlife's convenience.And the meaning of my shed presumedly is depended and expected that is to say privilege of being wide awake up to your nature ,environment,universe...At design phases,thoughts of mine are dominantly existed more than expectation of ready architecture .

Btw I'm appreciated to your proposal so much as well, i feel intimacy to your proposal,well done,good luck.

Strong Concept
by: c.j. hold

Hi there - i did the zen shed entry and i was just checking out the other entries - yours is easily one of the strongest concpets/forms here.
the adaptability youve built into the structure without compromising on key features of any great design - such as form and simplicity - is to be commended. Your sensitivity of the building in its environment - its footprint on the land etc.
is also to be applauded - yours is one of the few experimental designs ive seen that wouldnt cost a fortune, nor significantly impact its environment.
My only minor criticisms are that it would have been nice to have seen an actual use/human occupation - its a bit too minimal in this regard - given the relatively small floor area - some thought has to be given to practical things such as furniture to really bring it alive.
By raising it so far off the ground you have also excluded a large proportion of the population from the space - people in wheelchairs, visually impaired etc.
Overall though a very strong design concept. well done!

natural
by: João Magala

This proposal show us how simple a Shed can be, looking for context, tradition and nature on its concept. The panneling system allows good ventilation and control of sunlight and private degrees.
The materials are simple and I see that is doable by man.
Congratulations for your project.

Charming!
by: Ana

It is just good to see this design as relying on mother earth without wanting for any consumption.No demand,no ambition,like a higher state of mind...This shack is utterly peaceful and well-regarded.

To be adopted the nature respectfully
by: Halidun

As it is written in the text, this proposal was derived from a natural aspect, spectrum of prisma. So, designins this proposal in the nature in a way like how nature behaves has resulted as a proposal which is really integrated with nature. On the other hand it's been done respectfully, because the surface which connected to the ground is very less than -let's say- 1 square meter.
