Touched by the Sea
by Malin Nilsson
A place to just enjoy the feeling and happiness of being close to water
My shed is a hide-away on the edge of the shore a simple 3,3x3,3 design in wood, with a porch wrapped around its entire volume, opening up for light to find its way in through the ceiling, as well as creating two pockets - two mini porches. One can serve as entrance as the other one serves as the bridge leading to the sea.
The "ribbon" of wood that wraps around as the porch also gives character to a more simple design and contrast by being made out of a different type of wood, or different colour, depending on the users preferences!
My location is the Swedish West coast. A rough climate during many of the months of the year but a place that for a few summer months is the perfect place to enjoy the rare warmth and the beauty of the ocean. To be useful for a bit longer, my shed is insulated and could work as an addition to a larger house, or just as a cabin for those who wants to wake up to the sound of waves and seagulls!
